The Youth Justice Service is a statutory agency which was set up in 1998 with the intention of reducing the risk of young people offending and re-offending.
The Youth Justice Team is made up of a small team of social workers who work with young people aged 10 to 18 who have committed or may be at risk of committing an offence.
We provide support and specialist service to young people to prevent further involvement in criminal activities and create opportunities for young people to remain valued members of their community.
It is not only our role to ensure the welfare of young people, but also to improve the protection of the public.
As well as working directly with the young people and their families, we have established meaningful partnerships with a number of public and voluntary organisations, such as Action for Children, Probation Service, and CAMHS (Child, Adolescent Mental Health Service).
We also recruit and train volunteers to work with young people who would beneﬁt from extra support and a positive adult role model. If you are interested in finding out more about the volunteer's role and what is involved in becoming a volunteer then download the leaflet at the bottom of this page.
