The key aims of HYJS are to reduce youth crime, protect the public and safeguard young people. We help young people to stay out of trouble by offering tailored a intervention to suit individual needs.
If a young person is convicted by a Court and placed under statutory supervision, we assess their individual risks and needs, and create a tailored support plan (also called an intervention), we also complete assessments and offer interventions in diversions and pre-court disposals.
We work with the families of young people who offend, along with schools and other community services to help young people achieve positive outcomes and get their lives back on track. Our staff can assist in signposting to health and substance misuse services, education and training support, and advice on employment and housing.
We provide the Police, Courts and the secure estate with advice and reports to assist with decision making, including sentence management. We also offer information, support and guidance to victims of youth crime as well as using a restorative justice approach.
Our service operates from both Kenworthy House in the centre of Hull and the Kastor Centre on Beverley road. (Whilst Kenworthy House is open 9am - 4.30pm, or office hours are 8:30am - 5pm (Monday to Thursday) and 8:30am - 4.30pm Friday.
