​Youth Support services celebrates 30 years

YSS is an independent charity which is very proud to be celebrating
30 years of providing mainly community based support services for
people who are often vulnerable, have complex needs and who
face difficult life challenges. Those supported include young carers
(aged 7 -24), young people in custody (aged 10 -17) and adults
coming out of prison. 

YSS started in 1986 as a multi-agency project called ISS (Intensive
Support Scheme) hosted under the umbrella of the Worcester
Diocesan Board for Social Responsibility with a management board consisting of Social
Services, Youth Services, Education, Probation, Police and local Magistrates. The name
changed to YSS in 1994 and in 2000 YSS was registered as an independent charity
and company limited by guarantee. They now reach over 2000 people a year across
West Mercia & Warwickshire and have 50 staff and over 150 volunteers. 

YSS is often described as being ‘the glue’ between people at risk of being socially
isolated and wider mainstream society by delivering support services that are focused
on achieving positive life outcomes. Staff and volunteers work mainly out in the
community at times and places that suit the service users. They are passionate about
what they do and will always go the extra mile to make a difference.

Please pray for the staff
at volunteers and YSS and
the many vulnerable people
which the charity supports.
