Who is our service for?
This service works with two specific groups of young people:

  • Young people aged 16-17 who are not in education, training or work-based learning to support them into employment, training and/or education.
  • Young people 16-18 and young parents 16-19 who are receiving government financial assistance to assist them in meeting their obligations for receiving support.

Free phone: 0800 WEST UP - 0800 937 887


Youth Service West works with young people and young parents to find the best options for education, training or work based learning that will help them build their skills and find suitable employment. 

We work alongside young people, as their personal advisors, giving them the support they need to achieve qualifications (including NCEA Level 2), and support them towards achieving financial independence.
