Young Person's Plan

What is a Young Person’s Plan? 

A Young Person’s Plan (YPP) is a new way of working with young people. The aim is the young person is able to decide who they feel is the best professional to work directly with them. We believe that a young person with support can make more decisions about their own lives.

Who needs a Young Person’s Plan? 

A Young Person’s Plan is used when:

  • A young person may not be safe
  • A young person may not be going to school or college
  • There are worries about the people that the young person is spending time with
  • There are worries about drugs or alcohol use   
  • There are worries about exploitation and going missing

When and where will the meetings be?

Young Person’s Plan meetings take place anywhere you feel comfortable to attend.

We will:

  • Listen to you
  • Ensure you have a voice
  • Support you to make important decisions about your future

What happens at these meetings?

We will talk about:

  • What is going well
  • Your views
  • What we are worried about
  • What needs to change

If you have any more questions you can talk to your Social Worker or Key Professional.
