Youth justice

We work with children and young people aged between 10 and 18 with the aim of preventing offending and re-offending.

The Youth Justice Service (YOT) includes representatives from local councils, the police, probation service and health authorities and a range of other agencies. Find out more about Youth Justice Services at GOV.UK.

We make sure young people face up to their crime, take responsibility for their actions and we offer help and support if there are any personal issues like family background and friends that make re-offending more likely.

All referrals into the Youth Justice Service come exclusively through convictions up held in Her Majesty’s Court Service or through Nottinghamshire Police. All youth justice services are provided on a statutory basis.

We give every young person who has offended and been through the Court system one to one support. We look at ways to help the young person change their behaviour, and guide them towards new life opportunities like education and training, or learning new personal skills. All work is undertaken with the aim of reducing any further offending.
