EVERYONE COUNTS

The young people who are referred to YAP are at high risk of placement in care, secure care and custody.

These young people present with a range of inter-connected difficulties around their home, education, peer groups, behaviour and community (Level 3 and 4 on the Hardiker Scale).

The intensive support of up to 15 hrs a week over 6 months provided to young people and their families using a strengths based, needs led approach leads to positive outcomes for the young people, their families, their community and referral agents.

OUR MISSION

Changing the lives of children, young people and families in need of support by providing community-based, strengths-focused, inclusive, flexible services empowering them to achieve their own goals.

VISION

A society where all young people and families are confident and connected with their communities.
