Volunteers needed to help young offenders

Date: 24/10/2008           Category: Young People

The Youth Offending Team is looking for volunteers to join the service’s referral panels. These panels aim to draw up a contract with the young offender, to look at why they committed their crime, why they need to learn from it and even meet the victim and family, where appropriate. These panels are made up of two volunteers and a Youth Offending Team advisor. All volunteers will be fully trained. There are 25 volunteers working with the service at the moment, but there’s always room for more. The volunteers lead the discussion and so are crucial to the work of the panel. Please contact Ken Dance to find out more. Telephone 01634 336258.
