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 current Coronavirus outbreak has had a huge impact on our services.  We are now able to take new referrals and are offering a range of support.


Covid-19 urgent up-date

Due to the increase in cases, we are continuing to work remotely for at least the next few weeks. We are still taking referrals but initial meetings will not be face to face.

The wellbeing of the children and young people who access 'Amber' is paramount, and we ask
that you bear with us at this difficult time.



We are now taking new referrals. Please be patient if you have been referred or made a referral to the project and haven't heard from us, as we are extremely busy.



All workshops are now running (via Zoom). See What's On this week for details.

A new guitar group for beginners started on 25th November and runs 5.15 - 5.45pm.

All Friday workshops are taking a break over the Christmas period and will resume in the New Year.

If you have accessed a group in the past and would like to join again, then get in touch :-)

The project is extremely grateful to the funders who are enabling us to develop new ways of working at this difficult time. Take a look at our News page for more information about these groups.
