Young Adults' Services
Optimum Young Adults’ Services is a unique personalised service facilitated by trained, experienced and committed staff team.
Our Young Adults Service can be accessed through direct payments, personal budgets, Adult Services Framework (County), or self-funded. All services are agreed on the basis of individual need and are personalised to the individual young person. This will be determined after a initial needs assessment has being carried out by our assessment team.
