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