What do we do?

Wrexham Youth Justice Service works with children and young people aged 8 – 17 years in order to prevent offending and re-offending. We are a multi-agency team of professional staff who work within the Youth Justice system, and receive funding from the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales, Welsh Assembly Government and local Strategic Partnerships.

We work closely with the Youth Courts and implement a range of statutory orders that the Courts impose. This includes working with young people who are sent to custody.

We have a comprehensive Prevention Agenda which encompasses an Early Intervention Team. That involves working with partners in the community on initiatives that focus on supporting children and families in localities in Wrexham.

We have a growing number of volunteers, who offer support to the team by undertaking a variety of roles that include Mentors, Appropriate Adults, and Referral Panel Members. People of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to become involved.

Advice and guidance is offered to parents who are experiencing problems in managing their child’s anti social behaviour.

A major focus of our work is enabling young people to take responsibility for their behaviour and actions, and understand the harm that their offending causes others. We work closely with victims and encourage young people to undertake activities that repairs the harm to individuals and to the wider community.
