About the serviceYOT - Office

If you’re aged 10-17 and you’ve committed crimes you might be asked to work with us.
We support young people who have been involved in crime to help you to make more positive choices.
We will offer you and your family support to stop being involved in crime and to help you give back to any victims or to the wider community.
We can help you understand the justice system and explain any complicated terms, such as legal words.
We can help you understand what your rights are.
We can put you in touch with other services that may be useful for you and we can support you to get
involved in positive projects and activities.

We also aim to prevent children and young people from committing crime and help them lead more
fulfilling lives. We work mainly with young people aged 10-17 with a focus on:
  • Rights of victims and safety of communities
  • Ensuring young people are held accountable for the actions and give back to their victims or the wider community
  • Taking early action to stop young people getting involved in crime and anti-social behaviour.

We do this by offering:
  • Support for parents
  • Bail supervision and support
  • Work with other local groups to stop young people offending
  • Court reports advising the courts on an appropriate sentence.
  • Restorative justice - helping young people to make good on any harm or damage they caused.
