The Slough Youth Offending Team works with young people to help stop offending, maximise their full potential and help them become responsible, crime-free members of the community. Following the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act, Youth Offending Teams were established in all local government areas in England and Wales. These teams are tasked with carrying out all youth justice services within their area. The Slough YOT is a multi-agency team that brings together the experience of police, social care, probation, education and health, in order to prevent offending and re-offending by children and young people.
It is the aim of the Slough YOT to engage young offenders at an early stage, and in the context of their families, so that offending behaviour can be tackled before it becomes entrenched.
