We work to:
- reduce youth offending
- protect the public and victims from youth crime
- prevent re-offending
We do this by helping young people make better choices and decisions. We concentrate on engaging young people in positive activities, education, training and employment that will keep them safe, divert them away from crime and help them improve their life chances and opportunities.
We work with children and young people (between 10 and 18 years old) who come to the attention of the police and courts because of their involvement in crime or anti-social behaviour. We also provide early intervention services to prevent young people getting caught up in youth crime and entering the criminal justice system.
We provide a range of services including:
- supporting young people and their families to try stop them from becoming further involved in crime and anti-social behaviour
- working with victims to help keep them safe
- reducing the impact of youth crime by restorative justice (ways of helping the young person make amends for the harm done)
