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.
Targeted Support works closely with the Youth Justice Service providing support to young people between the ages of 8–18 across Nottinghamshire, Case Managers work with young people to help resolve problems which may include attendance or behaviour at school, drugs or alcohol, difficulties finding work, training or re-entering education having left school, getting involved in anti-social behaviour and/or crime, missing from home or school, homelessness, young carers, teenage parents.

The service supports Victims and survivors to be resilient and in doing so are less likely to be re-victimised; empowered to cope and recover from crime and anti-social behaviour by timely and effective victim-centred support from local services, families and communities.
Victims do not have to report a crime to access the service. Victims of both recorded and self-reported crime are tracked at all points in their journey and given access to information, practical support and advice and where appropriate, referral to ‘cope, recover and empowerment’ support services in their local communities.
Victim CARE ensures that the support will be victim-centred and outcome focussed. It will ensure that the needs of the victim are considered and supported at every stage of the criminal justice process.
The service is provided by a team of experienced professional case workers, giving one to one support to victims of crime and ASB. The team is supported by a committed and highly trained team of volunteers. The aim is to improve victims’ experience with the criminal justice system and associated support services.
Types of support
Victims of crime and anti-social behaviour benefit from enhanced help and support with a new-style service, designed around the needs of victims to help them cope and recover from their experience and empower them to become more resilient
Tailored emotional and practical support, advocacy and restorative justice determined through a ‘needs assessment’, focusing on the level of harm caused by the crime and the vulnerability of the victim.
A dedicated Caseworker providing one to one support to each victim, making it less stressful for them and reducing the number of times they are asked to tell their story
Access to restorative justice services arranged by the Caseworker, which could include facilitating dialogue with a person with a conviction. Restorative justice brings those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for the harm into communication, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.
Have you or someone you know been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident?
Hate crimes and incidents come in many different forms. It can be because of hatred on the grounds of your race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability.
Hate crime in any form is wrong. That is why it is important that if hate crime happens to you or someone you know, that you report it.
On this website, you can:
find out what hate crimes or hate incidents are.
find out about the ways you can report them.
report using the online form.
find information about people that can help and support you if you have been a victim.
Reporting makes a difference – to you, your friends, and your community. By reporting hate crime when it happens, you can help stop it happening to someone else. You will also help the police to better understand the level of hate crime in your local area, and improve the way they respond to it.
All reports should be made using the online form available on the 'Reporting online' page on the website.
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.
