Hampshire Youth Offending provides support for both the victims of crime and for the young people who have offended. Our aim is to give victims of crime a voice, enable harm to be repaired and to prevent the young person from offending again. We do this by facilitating restorative processes, work that would not be able to take place without the support and dedication of our excellent team of volunteers.
If you are looking to volunteer and have an interest in working with young people who have offended (some of whom can be challenging at times) and victims with an aim of preventing re-offending and repairing the harm cause by crime, then please read the information below.
Recruitment of volunteers for the Youth Offending Team is currently on hold. We are planning on running some more recruitment from summer 2016. In the mean time, we are signposting all potential volunteers to a partner project within Childrens Services that is recruiting volunteers to help support children, young people and families and, in turn, help them avoid the need for extensive Children’s Services intervention. Further information on the roles available.
