YSS is designed to support young people aged 10-17 who have had recent contact with police and who may be at risk of entering the youth justice system. 

YSS supports young people and their families to address problems before they become too serious. YSS is a voluntary service which operates independently of the legal process to help young people and their families achieve their goals.

Referrals to this service are made by Victoria Police with the consent of both the young person and their parent(s).
