Community Youth Teams (CYTs) are multi-agency teams, aimed at young people aged 8-19 years in need of extra support to help them realise their potential.
CYTs bring together a range of professionals from different organisations, including ourselves, Sheffield Futures, South Yorkshire Police and specialist health staff, into a single integrated service which provides early intervention and prevention for young people who may be experiencing, or be at risk of, poor outcomes.
Workers who have come together to create the CYTs include the following:
Targeted Youth Support (TYS) Advisers
Specialist health workers
CYTs aim to maintain young people's engagement in school and post-16 education, employment and training and steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour.
They help young people make the right choices and avoid behaviours that harm them and their communities, such as drug or alcohol misuse, sexual exploitation or teenage pregnancy.
They also improve young people's aspirations and self-belief and give them the resilience to cope better with the ups and downs of life.
CYTs have been designed in response to what young people, their families and professionals working with young people have said they want - easily accessible, integrated services.
CYTs welcome referrals from young people themselves, parents, carers and professional working with young people.
Referral is easy, simply print off and complete the appropriate form.
If you would prefer to complete the form electronically or need any further support, please contact us.
