Universal Youth Services Contract

North Yorkshire County Council 

North Yorkshire Children and Young People’s Service (CYPS) is an active partner in the North Yorkshire Children’s Trust. It helps deliver the local children and young people’s plan, Young and Yorkshire. The plan has underlying principles, which include:

Work in close partnerships, in the best interests of children, young people and families

Recognise and use the capacity of the voluntary and community sector in enhancing provision and choice

Recognise that fun, happiness and enjoyment of life are also important

The Trust and the Children and Young People’s Service recognise the importance of having youth provision in local communities. Some of this maybe through direct delivery but by far the majority of the provision will be made by local community volunteers. The Authority has invested in a Stronger Communities team, who help invigorate and stimulate community action.

CYPS’s Prevention and Inclusion Service supports vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. This is achieved by identifying those young people who may need extra help and providing them with additional support from a named worker. Where young people have specific problems they are supported in getting the help they need from specialist services.

This contract’s two lots will provide youth services across North Yorkshire and will have due regard to the population profile, the geography and rurality of North Yorkshire and the operational structure of the Youth Support Service when determining its delivery model. Service Providers can bid for one or both lots.

The Contract will be for a period of 3 years with an option to extend for a further period of up to 2 years. Therefore the total possible Contract duration is 5 years (3+1+1).

  • To establish, where necessary, a network of volunteers from a range of sources to provide individual support for young people in their local community.
