YPAS - Information Advice and Guidance (IAG)

Practical One to One Support


Young People IAG

Delivered via one-to-one support, this project works with children and young people aged 11—25 who, due to a wide range of needs, are isolated and often have low confidence and self-esteem. The aim of the project is to support and give confidence to young people in setting goals, focusing on enhancing positive mental health and well-being, assisting young people to break down any barriers or challenges faced.
