Who we are

We are here to provide effective support to children, young people and their families at the right time.

In Barnsley we want all young people to fulfil their true potential and to have a bright future.

Our Targeted Youth Support Service works with young people aged 11-19 years (and those up to 25 with additional needs) to provide targeted support either on a one to one basis or as part of a group or project.

Through early help or the early identification of an issue, we can offer a range of universal and targeted support to reduce or prevent problems or issues from getting worse and bring in the right support at the right time to meet young people’s needs.

What support is available?

Services and support are provided by the Early Intervention and Prevention team or the Youth Justice service, depending on the issues and needs.  

We can offer:

  • Targeted youth support in communities
  • Listening to young people
  • Early help and one to one support
  • Young people missing from home or care.
