What we do

Our main responsibility is to prevent re-offending by children and young people aged 10–17. However, we are increasingly involved with our partner agencies in developing initiatives aimed at preventing crime.

We also have:

  • a Prevention Team that specialises in working with young people who are at risk of offending and may have received a final warning, for which we offer a specialist programme aimed at diverting them from further offending
  • a wide range of programmes for working with parents and carers
  • a large volunteer programme. We encourage members of the community to work with us to create safer communities. If you would like to work with us, please phone our volunteer coordinator at our Worthing office.
