The Slough Exploitation and Youth Justice Service, previously know as the 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 Exploitation and Youth Justice Service 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 service 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.

Slough is one of the most diverse places in the country outside of London and a great place to live or work. In fact it’s the best place to live or work according to a survey by Glassdoor. Pleasant environments, above average salaries and a lower cost of living, mean an increased quality of life for employees. We’re also one of the most accessible places to be, nestled on the corner of the M25, M4 and M40, and less than 20 minutes by train to Central London.
