  • Our Approach

    YPS is 100% committed to providing services to children/young people that are realistic, appropriate and responsive to their needs and goals.

  • Safe spaces

    We recognise that it can be scary for young people to access services & share their story so we’ve worked with children/young people, other agencies & community members to make sure all our office, Residential sites & Drop-in space are safe and youth friendly spaces.

  • Safe & Well 
Trained Staff

    As a child and young person agency YPS is accountable to the safety of children & young people at all times. All staff employed by YPS in a child-related role must undergo the Working with Children Checks & National Criminal History check.
