Executive Summary

Group of peopleWith twenty years practice experience the Directors at Dynamic Youth Support Services (DYSS) have a successful record in youth work, community development, effective early intervention and residential care for young people. We recognise that undertaking any project to work with young people requires commitment, motivation and enthusiasm. An in depth knowledge of residential services at DYSS is supported by professional qualifications in Youth and Community education and an MSc in Social Work.

It is our belief that young people are barometers of good practice. We have a commitment to social justice and treating individuals with dignity and respect. To promote sustainable and positive change we recognise that young people’s voices should be heard.  This will influence the way that we work. We believe to make a successful transition to independent living requires strong foundations.

Understanding who you are is fundamental to the person that you choose to become. Enabling young people to identify their personal values and strengths creates a strong personal identity. DYSS offers a safe and supportive environment for young people to make informed and positive choices.
