Targeted Support Referral Form
Targeted youth support referral formIntegrated Youth Support - October 2012
The service aims to offer support to vulnerable young people living in Kirklees. We work with young people aged 8 -19 years (up to 25 years for those with learning difficulties of disabilites) and base our support on the individual needs of young people.
Targeted Youth Support includes a number of acitvity based advice, guidance and development programmes to help young people make progress as well as supporting young people to access recreation opportunities.
Before you complete the form there are some key points to remember:
- The young person and parent/guardian (if appropriate) must be aware of and consent to the referral and be aware of the reason fro referral as this may be discussed at a home visit.
- All referrals will be allocated to workers in the locality where the young person lives.
- All submitted referrals will be assessed in order to identify the most appropriate support available either Targeted Youth Support or Integrated Youth Support. In some cases it may be recommended that support should be offered by appropriate partner agencies.
- Referrals are accepted from professionals only and it is expected that concerns or risk factors identified can be evidenced.
