Youth crime prevention

How we prevent children and young people offending

We work with children and young people from an early stage to understand what difficulties they are going through to prevent offending, and also help with other problems they may be facing.

We offer a wide range of services to help tackle offending, including access to -

  • a named youth justice officer
  • specialist staff e.g. a Police Officer
  • victim liaison officer

We identify children and young people who can be diverted from formal legal action and help avoid the stigma of a criminal record through intervention at an early stage. These young people are then supported to steer them away from further trouble.

We work in partnership with Humberside Police and children and young people’s services to provide a range of activities that divert young people away from further opportunities to re-offend.
