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.
