Hertfordshire's Targeted Youth Support (TYS) changes its name
In April, what used to be called the Targeted Youth Support Service (TYSS) became known as the Specialist Adolescent Service Hertfordshire (SASH).
Always in high demand, TYSS is transforming the way in which it works in order to provide more effective and meaningful support to:
- Young people aged 11 to 17 in families at risk of breakdown or on the edge of care
- Young people who go missing from home or those that are at risk of, or experiencing, child exploitation, including gangs and county lines
- Young people in the Youth Justice system to prevent offending and re-offending; and to support victims of youth crime and their communities
- Young people aged 16 to 17 years old who are homeless.
There will still be four area teams and two cross county teams, one with a responsibility for Youth Justice the other for Social Care.
