Home Youth Liaison Officer

The aim of our work is to provide a sympathetic, confidential, non judgemental support to young people and their families with the objective of enhancing the young person's future personal, social development and well being. 

We provide a link between the family, school and professional services in both the Community & Voluntary and Stautory sectors.

The guiding principle that underpins all of our work is to place the young person at the centre of the decision making process with the aim of allowing them to take responsibility for their own choices and actions.
