Youth Justice Service

If you are known to the police or you have been referred by children’s social care, the Youth Justice Service will work with you.

They’ll help you to understand how offending behaviour effects you as well as others and to avoid offending again.

See here for more information on this team and what happens if you are in trouble with the police.
