The Conwy and Denbighshire Youth Justice Service is responsible for working with young people aged 10-17 years who get in trouble with the law. We aim to prevent them from getting involved with anti-social behaviour, offending and re-offending. We look into the background of a young person and try to help them stay away from crime.

We work in partnership with:

  • Conwy County Borough Council
  • Denbighshire County Council
  • North Wales Police
  • Probation officers
  • Health, housing and children’s services
  • Careers Wales
  • Substance misuse services
  • Schools and education services
  • Charities and the local community


Our work

We get involved with a young person if they:

  • get into trouble with the police or are arrested
  • are charged with a crime and have to go to court
  • are convicted of a crime and given a sentence

We also offer support to victims of youth crime and anti-social behaviour. This can be via restorative justice sessions, where the people who have been harmed and the young people that have caused harm are brought together.

Make a referral

We accept referrals from:

  • parents
  • schools
  • community police officers
  • other professionals

If you are concerned about the behaviour of a young person, please get in touch.
