What does a youth offending service do?

Children and young people offend for a variety of reasons.

For example:

  • Social and family problems
  • Peer group pressures
  • Social exclusion
  • Truancy
  • Drug problems

To prevent re-offending we need the input of staff with the knowledge and skills to help offenders make the right life choices.

No one has all the solutions to youth offending.

By working together, sharing knowledge, skills and experience can reduce it.

We are committed to this multi agency approach in carrying out our mission to:

  • make Darlington a safer place; and
  • improve the opportunities of the young people we work with.
