Youth offenders

Planned maintenance to payments system

We're making essential updates between 1.00pm and 5.00pm on Sunday 29 November. Unfortunately, we may be unable to take payments, via parts of our website or by telephone, during this time.

Our 'Youth Offending Team' (YOT) is made up of staff from the Police, Probation Service, Children’s Services and Health and has many partners including the Courts, Substance Misuse Services and Housing providers.

We work with young people from the age of 10 years old into young adulthood, who are at risk of, or involved in offending behaviour.

We have the skills and abilities to respond to any risks or needs in the lives of young people, their families, and their victims, in York.

Our values and purpose

  • changing the outlook and behaviour of individuals we supervise
  • reducing youth crime by working in partnership to ensure that young people get the support and direction they need
  • ensuring that the voices of victims are heard
  • working with families and the community to help them promote positive change in young people
  • protecting the public through rigorous enforcement of sentences imposed by the court
  • safeguarding all young people

We work closely with the following key partners in local justice:
