The Youth Advocate Programme is a unique service based on a strengths based, needs led model which engages with young people and families, not on the basis of what the problems are, but on what they have achieved and still want to achieve. The programme offers intensive support of up to 15 hours a week of 1:1 work with the young person and being needs led also supports the family and carers with practical and emotional issues that enhance the life of the young person. It has been designed to address the needs of young people who are vulnerable to a range of negative life outcomes including, early school leaving, criminal activities, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, poverty, violence and ill health. One of the main aims of YAP is to maintain young people at risk of out of home placements including secure care and/or custody in their communities, while we also work with young people who are out of their homes to help them re-integrate back into their communities.
