The Youth Justice Service (YOT) includes representatives from local councils, the police, probation service and health authorities and a range of other agencies. Find out more about Youth Justice Services at GOV.UK.
We make sure young people face up to their crime, take responsibility for their actions and we offer help and support if there are any personal issues like family background and friends that make re-offending more likely.
All referrals into the Youth Justice Service come exclusively through convictions up held in Her Majesty’s Court Service or through Nottinghamshire Police. All youth justice services are provided on a statutory basis.
We give every young person who has offended and been through the Court system one to one support. We look at ways to help the young person change their behaviour, and guide them towards new life opportunities like education and training, or learning new personal skills. All work is undertaken with the aim of reducing any further offending.
All libraries provide books for loan by children and adults (fiction, non-fiction and large print), PCs with a range of software, including free internet and email, CDRoms and a range of information services.

The Holocaust Centre promotes an understanding of the roots of discrimination and prejudice, and the development of ethical values, leading to a greater understanding within society.

The Centre promotes respect for human rights, equal opportunities and good citizenship, which has greater resonance than ever in our culturally diverse society.
The Holocaust Centre provides a range of facilities for people of all backgrounds to explore the history and implications of the Holocaust.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Public Health have commissioned a new and exciting website ‘Health for Kids’ which will be managed by the Youth Service. The website is due to be launched in January 2019.
Health for Kids is a health promotion website offering information in a fun and interactive way for primary school children, parents/carers and teachers. The website will offer local news on upcoming events, campaigns, blogs, articles and useful information about services available to children within Nottinghamshire. The website aims to help promote the health and wellbeing of children aged 5-11 years.
Moving forward, the Youth Service will also be managing the Health for Teens Website, which was launched back in January 2016. Health for Teens offers health and wellbeing advice and information to young people aged 11-19, promoting a healthy body and mind. The site provides local information on relevant services to signpost young people to within Nottinghamshire.
As a service we would like to inform you of how to contact us in regards to supporting the websites to ensure the information we include on the local pages is up to date and relevant for Nottinghamshire. For example, if you have an event you would like us to promote to children, young people, parents or carer, or if you have a campaign that is running locally we can publicise these on the Health for kids or Teens Website’s.
We would also like to request you to promote the relevant website to the appropriate age group through your service. We have a range of publicity material available electronically and a limited supply of hard copies.
