About Youth Service
Youth Service is a new approach to working with young people.
It aims to get young people into education, training or work-based learning. This will help young people gain the skills to find a job and have an independent future.
Young people work with community-based providers who give guidance, support and encouragement to help them find the education, training or work-based learning that works.
Youth Service offers guidance and practical support to young people. It is about stepping in early to help build potential through education, training or work-based learning.
Financial assistance and obligations
Some young people will work with a Youth Service provider as part of getting financial support from Work and Income. This includes young people who are receiving Youth Payment, Young Parent Payment or receive support as a partner of a specified beneficiary.
If you’re receiving financial support, you’ll have to meet your obligations to keep getting your payments.
If you don’t have a good reason for not meeting these obligations your payment will be reduced or stopped.
