Calderdale Youth Offending Team is a multi-agency partnership preventing offending by working with young people, parents, victims of crime, communities and engaging volunteers.
The Youth Offending Team (YOT) is a one-stop shop for all young offenders. with teams of trained professionals with specific disciplines work together in one office to tackle youth offending. The YOT is composed of social workers, probation officers, police officers, education and health workers, housing workers and drug misuse professionals.
YOTs are required to produce an annual Youth Justice Plan that describes the nature and scale of offending by young people in their area and the programmes available to tackle it. Several agencies contribute to the overall budget of the YOT to tackle youth crime.
