Youth Services

COMMUNITY REACHthis external link will open in a new window - Supports, accepts and empowers vulnerable young people and adults.  Community outreach, life coaching, sports and art coaching and youth work.  Also have children's activities and parenting courses.  Young people - we provide a range of programmes, from general to the specific, from the group centred to the individually focused, and from providing life skills to accredited qualifications.

TARGETED YOUTH SUPPORT - Our three Targeted Youth Support Services delivery priorities are:

1) HOLISTIC FAMILY SUPPORT

  • Families with a young person aged 11+

  • As a frontline service we coordinate and case manage Early Help Plans with the family's consent

  • We case manage step downs from Child in Need Plans to Early Help Plans.  This includes a period of joint working with the Social Worker for up to 4 weeks prior to the step down

  • We take the lead coordination role for open and complex Early Help cases, transferring the coordination and case management role to us from another partner.  These can only be transferred to us through the Early Help Panels using the TYS complex case pathway and criteria.  Submission to Panel is not a guarantee that we will allocate it

  • Return to Home Interviews with young people who go missing

2) SCHOOLS OFFER FOR THOSE AGED 11+ NOT ON A STATUTORY OR EARLY HELP PLAN

TYS can offer some group work with young people as part of a multi-agency Schools Offer.  The TYS Team will consider requests in the following areas:

  • Risk and Safety - Drugs, alcohol and sexual health awareness group work.  Keeping themselves safe

  • Friends and Relationships - Reducing isolation.  Developing more positive and appropriate friendships

  • Feelings and Behaviour - Dealing and coping with difficult feelings.  How behaviours impact on self and others

  • Confidence and Self Esteem - Building a positive image of self.  Believing they can achieve

3) TARGETED UNIVERSAL

The TYS Team also act as the lead for the Refugee Families Programme, Youth Councils, Youth Democracy, UK Youth Parliament, Young Fire Fighters and other young people's fire safety programmes.
