Who we are and what we do
We are a multi-agency service made up of youth justice social workers and support staff including police, health, probation and education.
The aims and objectives of the service are to:
- prevent offending and re-offending for children and young people aged between 10 and 17 years
- encourage and inspire children and young people to help them maximise their potential and become responsible members of the community
- ensure we have a child-first approach, which means we are putting children and young people at the heart of what we do to ensure they have the right support and influence our service delivery and decision making.
