Apex is pleased to be involved in the Aberdeen Youth Justice Development program ‘whole system approach’ which provides Intensive Support Services for vulnerable young people who are at high risk of harm to themselves and/or others.
This service is being provided as part of a ‘whole system approach’ to address persistent and/or serious offending and/or anti-social behaviour. Support offered will include mentoring, one to one learning, offending work, and recreational activities. The Intensive Support Service is used as an alternative to secure care and custody.
The service is for young people aged 8 to 18 in the Aberdeen area who are at high risk of being placed in secure accommodation
