Youth action service

The youth action service is a multi-agency service to young people who are offending, at risk of offending or have substance misuse issues.

Our youth action teams have a range of staff available to work directly with young people and families.

We can offer:

  • Substance misuse programmes
  • Offending behaviour programmes
  • Family support programmes
  • General support
  • Information

There are two youth action teams in Highland:

  • The North (Caithness and Sutherland) and the Mid (Mid and East Ross) phone  01955 605792 or 01349 855502 or 01349 868700
  • The South (Inverness Badenoch and Strathspey) phone 01463 256603

There are four broad areas of work to be addressed by the service which are identified in Preventing Offending by young people - Planning and Performance Improvement Framework (Scottish Government National Guidance May 2010).

The accountability for the service delivery is overseen by the Youth Justice Strategy Group.
