Bury YOT supervises orders on behalf of the court and works with young offenders and victims of crime. The team also undertakes preventative work with those young people who are at risk of becoming involved in crime and anti-social behaviour.
Youth Offending Service
Bury Youth Offending Service is a partnership, formed in October 1999, with the overall aim of preventing offending by children and young people. We also hope to play our part in helping young people to have more fulfilling lives, strengthening families and making communities feel safer. The Youth Offending Service in Bury includes staff from social care, the police, the probation service, education, health and other agencies.
Our main work is with young people between the ages of 10 and 17 and their families. In this we give particular attention to:-
The rights of victims and the safety of communities
Seeking to ensure that young people are held to account for their criminal actions and 'put something back' for their victim or the wider community
Reinforcing the responsibilities and rights of parents and young people
Putting in support and taking early action when young people show signs of getting into trouble
Working with young people to improve their life chances
Playing our part in local efforts to make Bury a safer place for everybody
To prevent crime and anti-social behaviour by young people.
