The Law

Young people have certain rights in much the same way as adults have basic rights. You have a right not to be discriminated against simply because of your age, colour, gender or race. Here are some sites that will give you advice and support.

Youth Offending Service (YOS)

YOS work with young people, aged 10-17 who have been sentenced by a court, or who have come to the attention of the police because of their offending behaviour, but have not been charged
YOS also provide support to parents in finding ways to help their child avoid further offending and oversee and support crime prevention arrangements for any children and young people in the borough who are at risk of crime and anti-social behaviour.
