Integrated Youth Support

Integrated youth support (IYS) is a national framework that brings together the wide range of statutory and voluntary organisations and agencies that provide information, guidance, help and support for young people aged 13 – 19 and up to 25 for those with additional needs.

In this section of the website you can find more information on:

The framework outlines how services should be delivered, and the processes and culture change required to enable organisations and agencies to work together effectively.

All services for young people, universal, targeted or specialist, are contributing to the delivery of integrated youth support. That is why workers, volunteers and managers from across the health sector, youth justice, social care, education, youth and Connexions service, district/borough authority services, the voluntary sector and the Police, are currently integrating their work around the needs and circumstances of young people.
