The Youth Crime Prevention referral form can be used if professionals or parents/carers have concerns that a young person may become / or believe they are getting involved in anti social behvaiour or potential offending behaviour.
Any professional or parent can use the form to refer in.
It is important that parental consent is gained before a referral is made to the Youth Offending Service
Once the referral has been accepted the young person will be allocated a worker who will undertake an assessment with them.
The Youth Offending Service will look at developing an intervention plan . In some cases it may be identified that a referral for support services at early help is the best way forward.
If you have any concerns regarding any known children involved in gang membership, their associates or any individuals you believe may be on the periphery of gang/youth violence, please complete the report form.
