Northamptonshire Youth Offending Service

The main purpose of the Youth Justice system is to prevent offending, so NYOS works hard to try to stop the children and young people we work with from re-offending.  Because NYOS believes that Restorative Approaches are the best way of working, we also work with victims of offences and communities to try to find ways of putting things right.  Whilst we are doing that, however, we have two other fundamental duties: –

a) To Protect the Public.

b) To Safeguard children and young people.

No-one can make a world with no risk, but NYOS works hard with partners to make sure that the risks are reduced as far as possible.
