What we do

Our main responsibility is to prevent re-offending by children and young people aged 10–17. We are also 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, encouraging members of the community to work with us to create safer communities - phone our volunteer coordinator at the Worthing office for more information.
