We help prevent young people from:
- Criminal activity
- Social exclusion
And provide positive guidance and opportunities for the future.
Why? Because young people are the future. Youth matters.
How? By listening to young people, understanding their needs, and working with them to help them to help themselves.
The Slough Youth Offending Team (YOT) offers innovative ways of motivating young people to turn away from crime and find a more positive outlook.
