Over the years we have worked with many young people who have engaged in various forms of offending behaviour – from misdemeanours to very serious offences, including violence and sex offences. These include those individuals with a history of offending, those that are first time offenders and those that are mixing with the wrong crowds and on a possible pathway to offending.
We work very closely with all professionals associated with the young person and their offending practices – the associated social worker, police, probation, youth offending services – to put a support package in place that will tackle the issues around the offending behaviour, educate the young people as to the pitfalls of an offending lifestyle and help them to fill their time more positively and proactively.
We understand that a criminal record can be a barrier for a young person to progress with education, employment and training – but we will work closely with the young person to navigate any obstacles and look at all options and possibilities available to them.
We have fantastic support workers who will help to form strong and trusted relationships with the young person and help steer them towards a more positive and healthy lifestyle.
