Who we help
We work with young people from 10 up to the age of 19 (25 if you have a disability or special educational needs).

How we work with young people and their families
When we first come into contact with a young person, we make an initial assessment of what they need, and plan the most appropriate ways of working with them. We can work with young people in a variety of ways:

  • One-to-one meetings with a case worker, programme officer or other specialist
  • Group and programme work to address specific needs and/ or issues
  • Joint working with our partners, including the social care, police, schools and organisations in the health, voluntary and community sectors
  • Working alongside families, where that’s appropriate and in a young person’s best interests.
