What are Community Youth Teams?

Community Youth Teams (CYTs) have brought together several young people’s support services into one service. They include the crime prevention arm of the council’s Youth Offending Service; Sheffield Futures’ youth workers and guidance workers; Children & Young People’s Police Officers and some specialist health staff.

The teams provide:

  • 1 to 1 support
  • Group Work Programmes
  • Open Access Youth Provision
  • Street Based Teams
  • Detached Youth Work

The aim of CYTs is to ensure all agencies work together to support young people and help them on the path to success. The CYTs work with 8-19 year olds who may require extra support or who are taking risks and need help to improve their lives and make better choices. The focus of the teams is to support young people at risk of offending or who are involved in anti-social behaviour; and to support young people into education, employment or training.

Extra support is given to those who are:

  • Not involved in education, employment or training (NEET)
  • Becoming involved in crime or gang activity
  • Involved in anti-social behaviour
  • May be at risk of sexual exploitation
  • May be at risk of becoming a teen parent
  • Misusing drugs or alcohol
  • At risk of developing poor emotional health and well-being

There are three CYTs – North (North East and Northern Community Assembly areas); East (East and South East Community Assembly areas); and West (Central, South and South West Community Assembly areas). The teams welcome referrals or an initial discussion from anyone – including professionals, parents or carers, members of the community or young people themselves. To find out more, simply contact the Community Youth Teams on 0800 138 8381 or cyt@sheffield.gov.uk for more information.
