#MORSE (Making Our Roads Safer for Everyone)

YSS is delighted to have been commissioned by John Campion, West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner (WMPCC)  to deliver a safer roads initiative across Telford, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire (West Mercia). We are excited with our delivery model which involves innovation, collaboration and joined up thinking in order to deliver an initiative comprising of different delivery strands which are all designed to enhance and add value to core road safety activity and avoid duplication.

YSS will be working closely with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), West Mercia Police, Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (H&WFRS), Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) and Warwickshire & West Mercia Community Rehabilitation Company (WWMCRC) in order to reduce the number of offences committed on our roads.

YSS will offer a single referral pathway across West Mercia, triaging the individual at the point of referral, assessing and identifying need, offering the individual a “pick and mix” of interventions which may include specialist one to one and/or group based interventions being delivered by H&WFRS and SFRS where appropriate. 

YSS Link Worker’s will provide specialist one to one interventions, this will consist of face to face/skype/facetime/telephone/email support and will be delivered at times and places that suit the individual, this may include evenings and weekends.

YSS will work with individuals to try to get to the root of the issue/behaviour, providing practical and emotional support which is ultimately aimed at avoiding repeat behaviour/offences. The one to one support will incorporate attitude, thinking and behaviour and motivational interviewing techniques in order to overcome barriers (real and perceived).

YSS is therefore now looking to recruit a team of dynamic Link Worker’s to join team YSS and join us on this exciting new journey into making our roads safer in West Mercia.
