What we do

Bradford & District YJS identifies the needs of each young offender by assessing them and addressing the specific problems that make the young person offend. The YJS also measures the risk they pose to others. This enables us to deliver suitable programmes that deal with the needs of the young person with the intention of preventing further offending.

On these pages you can find advice and information for young people, carers and parents on youth offending and the processes the police and courts use. Nacro and the Youth Justice Board provide more useful information on this.
