We work with young people aged 10 to 17 years, as well as their families, victims, and neighbourhoods, to prevent offending and re-offending. Our aim is to help reduce the impact, fear and amount of crime in Conwy and Denbighshire.

The team is made up of colleagues from different organisations who work together, including:

  • Youth Justice Officers
  • Prevention Workers
  • Social Workers
  • Probation Officers
  • Substance Misuse practitioners
  • Education specialists
  • A Victim Liaison worker
  • A Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) practitioner
  • A Police Officer
  • A Reparation Officer
  • Business Support
  • Careers Officers

Who do we work with?

We work with young people:

  • Who have not committed a crime, where there is a worry that they might become involved in offending. We call this our Turnaround or a Prevention Support Programme.
  • Who have been involved in anti-social behaviour, where the police have referred them to the Youth Justice Service to see if we can offer support.
  • Who have committed a crime, where the police have referred them for an out of court disposal, which we call Prevention Panel.




More about the team

Other work we undertake includes:

  • Appropriate adult services for young people during police interview
  • Anti-social behaviour and knife crime workshops in local primary and secondary schools
  • Community projects
  • Preparation of pre-sentence reports for court
  • Support services for victims of crime, including restorative justice

How we are funded

We are funded by the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales, Welsh Government, Conwy and Denbighshire Local Authorities, and local strategic partnerships.

Become a volunteer

We have a growing number of Youth Justice Service volunteers who support our team. Volunteers get the opportunity to work directly with children and young people, and support decision-making at our panel meetings.

We encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved.
