Home / About Us / Principles

At YSS, we are proud to have a culture of adaptability, inclusion and holistic support. Our teams of Support Workers and Volunteers are based in our local communities. They help individuals across Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Warwickshire to address difficulties and raise awareness of their rights and responsibilities. Whether we are supporting a child, a young person, an adult or a family we aim for our support to be holistic, in order to enable the individual to look to a more hopeful future.

Our standards

  • Support that is accessible and inclusive
  • Support that is rooted in our local community
  • Support that is adaptable and tactfully delivered

  • Trustworthy: We are honest and reliable
