A service for young people under the age of 18 that are involved in offending behaviour or suspected of a criminal offence; to support decision making with regards to the offence (diversion).
We offer advice, consultation, liaison and assessment (if indicated) to identify any unmet needs and refer into appropriate services for support (early intervention).
If services are already open to the young person our role is likely to be that of liaison with professionals and contributing to risk management
The service covers referrals across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
- The Young Person is under 18 years old.
- We cannot accept referrals where a Police Disposal Decision has already been made as the remit of the service is to contribute to Police decision making.
