About us


Thingy is an interactive app created  by young people  to help young people everywhere. It is a joint project between the Genesis Centre Whitehead, the Youth Justice Agency and the PSNI. In this app you’ll find:

  • What to do after you have left  school
  • How to open your own bank account.
  • Information on drug and alcohol misuse
  • What to do if your heads away
  • where you can turn if you have questions about sex or sexuality
