Summary:
The Adolescent At-Risk & Forensic Service (AAFS) is a flexible and responsive service offering evidence-based assessment, consultation and treatment for young people who are engaged in, or present significant risk of offending behaviour. This can include, but is not limited to, serious violence, fire-setting, and sexually harmful behaviour.

Young people who present significant risk of harm to self are also seen. For example, those exposed to harm through risk-taking behaviour or exploitation. Many of our clients will present with emerging personality and/or neurodevelopmental disorders.

We often treat young people who have exhausted the resources of their local CAMHS and still need assistance. We accept referrals from within SLAM, Greater London boroughs and nationally.
