Youth Offending Service

4. Statutory orders

We're responsible for supervising young people who've been convicted of offences and have received a sentence of the court. This could be in the community or in custody.

All young people on these statutory orders will have a full assessment of the:

  • risk they may pose of re-offending
  • harm they may pose to others
  • harm they may pose to themselves

A plan of work will then be drawn up with the young person and their parents. They will be seen on a regular basis to complete a range of work to reduce the risk of them re-offending.

We will contact all victims affected by offences committed by young people who've been convicted via the courts.

They'll be given the opportunity to have a face to face meeting with the young person who committed the offence against them.

Victims are also able to be involved in deciding the conditions under which a young person is released back into the community from custody.
