Northamptonshire Youth Offending Service

Welcome to the NYOS website!

Northamptonshire Youth Offending Service makes an innovative, constructive and highly successful contribution to the Youth Justice System in the county, and I am delighted to be introducing our latest innovations and practice.  This website is particularly for children and young people; their parents and carers and for victims of crime committed by young people.  It may also be of interest to members of the wider community and people who work within the Justice System (paid and unpaid).

NYOS provides robust assessment and intervention with children and young people who offend, taking account of the views of victims and involving them wherever possible.  Although our main aim is to prevent offending, Restorative Justice is at the heart of what we do and we want to help put things right wherever we can.

NYOS aims to be a provider of excellent services and a part of the community that we serve.  We are involved in a range of external partnerships, the details of which are on these pages.  There are a number of different ways for adults and young people to get involved in our work, and there is information on the ‘Join Us’ page.
