Youth justice

How we can help

We aim to prevent offending and reduce re-offending by children and young people.

Our team consists of staff from:

  • North Tyneside Council
  • Northumbria Police
  • National Probation Service
  • Health services

Our work is overseen by a partnership board with an independent chair.

What we do


  • assess the risk of re-offending and causing harm
  • plan and manage interventions to reduce these risks
  • work with partners to prevent further offending
  • make sure children and young people completing our interventions have access to the full range of services to help their chances in life
  • make sure that interventions with children and young people are driven by the needs of victims and communities affected by their offending
  • make sure that victims are engaged in the restorative processes with children and young people who offend
  • identify children and young people at risk of becoming involved in offending
  • make sure targeted and evidence-based interventions are provided directly or by commissioning services
