The youth offending service (YOS) is a multi-agency organisation made up of professionals from the police, social services, health, education, probation and youth and connexions.

Young people referred to the YOS take part in:

- Victim awareness and cognitive offending behaviour programmes.

It has a youth inclusion and support panel, which is a preventative programme that identifies young people at risk of offending and provide multi agency support to them and their families to minimise risk.
