Welcome to the Amber Project Website
The Amber Project exists to support any young person (aged 14-25) in Cardiff and the surrounding areas who has experience of self-harm.
Please feel free to look around, and if you have any questions or think that we might be able to help, please do contact us. We are available Monday - Friday, 9:30-5:30. Unfortunately the pandemic has had a huge impact on our services, but we are now able to take new referrals and are offering a range of support.
Self-Injury Awareness Day.
March 1st is Self-injury Awareness Day. For the past two years Belong and Amber have held very special events during this week sharing the work of the projects. Inevitably this year feels very different but we are optimistic that we will soon be able to able to begin face to face work again. And we are already working towards this years pantomime. See the first trailer below.
The Amber Project is delighted to release the first trailer for our 2021 pantomime:
Robyn Hood, The Legend of Sherwood.
(This project was supported by Glamorgan Voluntary Services through the COVID-19 High Risk Groups Charity and Voluntary Group Small Grant Scheme.)
