Targeted Youth Service Offer

Who does the Targeted youth offer aim to support?

Targeted Youth Service supports young people aged 11-18 and up 25 for SEND or Social action to be heard, be safe and stay safe.

What are the broad aims of youth work in Warrington?

Education Youth work offers informal learning opportunities that can complement the formal learning in schools and colleges. It gives young people the opportunity to learn about themselves and others, about issues that they care about or that concern them and about society and how to engage in their communities.

Empowerment Youth work helps young people to develop skills and confidence to make decisions and act on issues that affect their own lives, the lives of others, their communities and society. This enables young people to take control, have a voice and get involved as advocates.

Equality Youth work is for all young people. It respects differences and builds connections between different groups and individuals. It recognises and promotes human rights, social justice and anti-oppressive practices, supporting and challenging young people to reflect on their understanding of themselves and their behaviour towards others

Participation Youth work supports young people and works with them to become partners and leaders in their own learning, to help them gain influence over issues they are concerned about and to engage them in the democratic process.
