Issue details

Youth Support and Advice Service

Purpose of Report: This paper will provide details about the proposed model for a new integrated youth support and advice service for 16-25 year olds. The new model will complete the transformation of services currently located at 29a Castlegate and will result in the development of an integrated and co-located youth service offer operating from a city centre and various community-based venues which will bring together a range of professionals/partners to provide specialist advice and support for young people at risk of NEET, care leavers, those in the youth justice system and from other vulnerable groups. The service would provide targeted support to promote young people’s emotional health and wellbeing and support welfare to work pathways to secure effective transition to adult life for vulnerable young people.

Members will be asked to consider and approve the new model for an integrated youth support and advice service for 16-25 year olds.


This item has been withdrawn from the forward plan as more time is needed to work with young people and partners in order to ensure that the developed model delivers the right services to young people. This will mean that the remodelled service better meets the needs and improves outcomes for young people in the city.
