Prevention Service


 What is it? It’s a service offering early help for the 0-19 age range.

• The Prevention Service will bring together staff currently working in separate services (Integrated Services, Children’s centre support, Youth Support Services, aspects of Education Social Work, aspects of Early Years support, and Healthy Child Services 5-19)

• Staff who have a wide range of skills and expertise, will work together locally in one place to ensure that children, young people and families have speedier and easier access to the best possible support and help, when they need it.

• There will be 12 locally based Area Prevention Teams across North Yorkshire.

• The Prevention Service will only work with the agreed consent of the family or young person.
