Ypeople Orkney Young Persons’ Supported Accommodation Service (YPSAS)

Ypeople is registered with the Care Inspectorate as the provider of the Young Persons’ Supported Accommodation Service (YPSAS). Our aim is to provide a safe and secure environment so we can assist service users in their transition from homelessness to permanent accommodation.

The YPSAS, which is funded by Orkney Islands Council, provides support for homeless young people aged 16-25. The supported accommodation service is provided at two separate premises, one in Kirkwall and the other, 16 miles away in Stromness.

All referrals come from Orkney Islands Council Housing Services - Homeless and Advice Section. Our dedicated YPSAS staff team works closely with service users to help them to acquire the skills they will need to successfully manage their own tenancies and live independently within the local community. We also assist our service users to access support for  employment or training, mental health and counselling services, GP or dental services, as well as services from a wide range of other agencies. By doing so, we also help them to address those problems that might have initially contributed to their homelessness – for example,  issues such as relationship breakdown, drugs or alcohol misuse, mental health problems or debt management.
