Youth Service 


Youth service is an initiative designed to ensure that young people, 16 and 17 year olds (and some 15 year olds) who are not engaged in employment, education or training (NEET), or young people who are at risk of moving into this category receive mentoring and support.

Youth coaches provide a mentoring and support service to young people to encourage Youth to develop goals for their future and to set out on their elected path.  It aims to get young people into education, training or work-based learning. This will help young people gain the skills to find a job and have an independent future.
