Youth Justice and Early support Service - Family support services

What we do

The Youth Justice and Early Support Service (YJESS) works with children and young people aged between 8 and 17 years who are taking part in, or at risk of becoming involved in anti-social or offending behaviour and the victims of their crime/behaviour.

Our vision is to support young people to build on their strengths and fulfil their potential by setting out our ambitions to:

- Work together to improve the lives of young people, their families, victims, and the community through a restorative approach
- Work with young people to build on their strengths, enhance their opportunities, and encourage better decisions through a person centred approach
- Value the importance of young people and remain driven by fairness, inclusion, and equality
