Youth Offending

This section covers the work undertaken by the Youth Justice Service and considers the various aspects of the service that they provide from initial support at time of arrest through to working with young people post sentence.

There will inevitably be times when the work of the YOT will run alongside or overlap with work being undertaken by staff working elsewhere within Children's Services, as well as other parts of the Council.  At all times the needs of the child should remain the priority, with professionals working with and not against each other to achieve this.

The following pages set out the procedures for YOT staff when working with young people, their families and victims of crime.
