Essex Youth Offending Service are actively seeking volunteers from the community to help them in their work of preventing re-offending by young people aged between 10 and 17 years.
We are searching for people like you who have skills and are looking to learn new skills that can talk to young people, their parents and sometimes the victim of the offence to draw up a contract to address the young person's offending behaviour. The contract is designed to prevent young people from re-offending, but also looks to try to repair the harm caused which can benefit both the victim and the community.
You would receive full training and support.
• You would be able to fit this role around your existing commitments.
• You would be welcomed in to a friendly and supportive team who care about the community in which they live.
