Preventative youth work

Personal and social development programmes

Services for Young People has experience and specialist knowledge in offering sustained support for vulnerable young people by helping overcome barriers to progression.

Issues and needs successfully addressed include:

  • lack of positive aspirations
  • emotional support
  • recognising potential
  • planning and preparing for independence

Through our new personal and social development programmes, our practitioners work with the young person to identify areas for development, barriers to achieving their goals and both presenting and underpinning issues. When required, the practitioner will also work closely with parents, teachers or other partners to develop innovative and long lasting solutions to ensure young people have a smoother and less problematic journey through the educational system and beyond.

As well as one-to-one support, we can also offer sustained groupwork packages for young people who are identified as being at risk of dropping out of education or who are not progressing as they should. The nature and content of any groupwork will be designed to respond to their needs, deliver planned outcomes and can be tailored to specific groups.
