Targeted Youth Support

Barnsley’s Targeted Youth Support Service provides targeted service for children and young people aged 8-24 with SEND and their siblings.


The service offer aims to provide children and young people with support to explore issues and areas that can affect them as part of adolescence and growing independence.

Our programmes help to promote the personal and social development of young people, helping them to make a positive transition to adulthood whilst being able to socialise with their peers.
