Youth Development Team
One of the Youth Health Hub's services is our Youth Development Team (YDT) which are our youth workers.
A major part of their role is working closely with the clinical staff in providing youth friendly health services. We also support and empower young people to access the right support and encourage them to achieve lifestyle goals. This involves taking a youth development approach (strengths-based practice) which focuses on the young person’s strengths and builds on this as a way forward. The YDT works collaboratively with external agencies such as WINZ, education providers etc to best support the young person, their needs and requirements.
To access the support of the YDT you just need to fill out a referral form. Our friendly staff here at the Youth Health Hub are happy to help if you want more information about how to access these services and more.
