Doncaster Children’s Services Trust Youth Offending Service (YOS) is a high performing multi-agency partnership service that supports young people aged 10 to 18 who have come to the attention of the police and/or Courts.

Doncaster YOS use a relational, restorative, trauma informed and desistance-based approach (where we seek to understand each young person’s Lived Experience) in order to offer a bespoke intervention. We do not deliver offending behaviour or awareness programmes.

The YOS is well served by an excellent team of specialist staff including ETE advisors and a Speech and Language Therapist amongst others.

We have a strong focus on Restorative Practice, with our specialist worker offering mediation to victims of both prevention and statutory matters. We also have a team of highly trained volunteers who support our Referral Panel and mentoring processes.

We are currently looking to recruit two Assistant Youth Justice Officers (1 Permanent and 1 Temporary) who work across the spectrum of prevention and statutory cases, providing high quality assessments that include exploring three risk domains and where these are elevated, providing a plan to manage those risks but excluding High and Very High Risk (unless as part of personal development).

They also cover Magistrates and Crown Court, as well as providing a weekend and bank holiday service for young people who need more monitoring and support. The team also comprises our seconded Police and Probation Officers, six Youth Justice Officer grades and two Diversion Worker posts. Staff are operating a Blended Working model, with some office attendance combined with working from home (when not out in the community undertaking visits). Staff satisfaction within the team is high and turnover is low as a result of this.
