Youth Crime Prevention Team

What is the YCPT?

The Youth Crime Prevention Team (formerly YIST) works with children and young people aged 8-17 years old, who are at risk of offending or committing anti-social behaviour.

They work alongside other agencies and services including many voluntary and community groups as well as schools, The Police, housing, social care/services, health and The Youth Service.

How Can They Help You?

In the event that you are – or you know – a young person in need of their help, they can:

  1. Visit and get to know you better.
  2. Talk to youths, parents, teachers and others who might be able to help.
  3. Meet you and make a plan of what everybody is going to do to help the youth to stay out of trouble.
  4. Meet regularly with parents / youths to talk about how things are going.

How Can You Contact Them?

They accept referrals from a wide variety of agencies and services including Schools, The Police, Social Care and the Voluntary and Community Sector.

Their preferred route for referral is through the Common Assessment Framework, however, if the young person and their family do not have or want a CAF, then the referring agency or professional can support parents and carers to make self-referral.
