Objectives

The Leeds Youth Justice Service work to reduce offending by young people, aged 10 to 17 years old and provide support to their victims.

We work with young people who break the law, helping them to stay away from crime and reoffending. Often they are put in touch with us by the police or the courts. 

We help:

  • to support children and their families at court
  • to supervise children¬†who are bailed by the courts, during sentence and on release
  • with arrangements for a young person who is placed in care by the courts
  • young people serving a community sentence
  • young people sentenced to custody
  • offenders to understand the effects of their crime
  • parents or carers to understand their responsibilities

We work with victims of crimes to provide support and offer them the chance to take part in restorative justice. This is where a victim meets or communicates with their offender to explain the real impact of the crime.
