Supporting victims of crime and preventing re-offending
Hampshire Youth Offending provides support for both the victims of crime and for the young people who have offended
- Volunteering with the Youth Offending Team
Our aim is to give victims of crime a voice, enable harm to be repaired and to prevent the young person from offending again.
We do this by facilitating restorative processes, work that would not be able to take place without the support and dedication of our excellent team of volunteers.
Are you looking to volunteer?
- Do you have an interest in working with young people who have offended (this can be challenging work at times)?
- Would you like to help victims and repair the harm caused by crime?
- Would you like to help prevent re-offending?
If so, email YOT.Volunteering@hants.gov.uk
- Restorative justice
The Specialist Restorative Practitioners within our teams have responsibility for establishing contact with the victims of offences to offer them the opportunity to have involvement in the restorative justice process.
The restorative justice information booklet put together by the Restorative Justice Council may answer some of your questions.
