Suffolk Youth Offending Service

The Suffolk Youth Offending Service works with young people aged 10 to 17 who have offended.

We:

  • specialise in early intervention work, including triage and working with young people who have received a youth conditional caution or court order
  • have adopted a multi-agency approach to help make Suffolk a safer place
  • work to improve the life opportunities of the young people we work with.

Our initiatives include an emphasis on:

  • reducing the number of children and young people coming into the youth justice system (first time entrants)
  • reducing re-offending by children and young people
  • reducing the number of young people going into custody, either as sentenced or remand prisoners
  • ensuring young people make amends to victims of youth crime - taking a restorative approach to our work with young people is a priority in all our activities
