Targeted youth support is based on the local context and the views, experiences and talents of local vulnerable young people.
It is local agencies working together to identify young people who require additional support and challenge in order to meet as early as possible emerging risks and opportunities.
Organised services around the needs of young people and families to achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes and address the root causes of issues for young people.
Joined-up universal provision with the early identification of young people who are vulnerable and require integrated local support.
This is the swift and easy access to personalised support and positive activities based on a common assessment. Making the timely, coordinated and effective provision of relevant services and support a sound investment in preventing the escalation of young people,s problems.
“The trick is to see the potential for collaboration and informed planning for local enhanced prevention support to vulnerable young people as difficulties begin to emerge”.
“The genius is to involve these self same young people in designing and delivering the solutions!”
The goal is to ensure vulnerable young people receive a genuinely personalised and useful package of support at the earliest possible opportunity.
