Support for Young People

**UPDATE - Following Government guidance NESS offices and resource centres are now closed **

Supporting children and young people with a sensory loss to build confidence, self-esteem and life skills. Their parents also get a chance to share their experiences.

"The kids love it and feel very included when they’re all together doing these activities. We’ve been so fortunate being members of North East Sensory Services… we’ve made brilliant friends and receive great support.."

The Young People’s Sensory Service (YPSS) aims to support young people who have a sensory loss to get the most out of their childhood. Fun activities, social groups and trips help youngsters make friends and gain new experiences – at the same time as developing important life skills.

From support groups for parents of babies with sensory loss, to guidance for teenagers about to enter the workplace, YPSS works with young people from infancy to adulthood, to help them learn to get the most out of life.


We support each child as they develop friendships, grow in confidence and improve their independence.

Our varied programme of activities and outings might put children outside their comfort zone, but with the right amount of support each youngster needs, they will come home smiling!

YPSS hosts activities and youth groups in Aberdeen and Moray, as well as supporting young people in their local community.  If you would like to find our more or come along to one of our activities or groups, please contact us.lunch
