Accelerated Support Team (AST) provides a rapid-response service to young people and their families. The key objective of AST is to divert young people from care system and to enable them to continue to remain with or return to their families whenever safe to do so.

  • Our team provides an intensive level of support in crisis situations that is needed to avert family breakdown.
  • Our team intervenes when the situation at home appears to be getting more serious, as well as where there is a risk of the child/children entering the care system if the situation does not improve.

AST Is available to

Young people between the ages of 11 and 17

Referral Process:
