Youth Offending Team

Who the Youth Offending Team are and what they do


Somerset Youth Offending Team (YOT) aims to reduce youth offending. Most of the work of the team is with young people aged 10 to 18 who have been arrested by the police for a crime.

They also work with families and carers, with victims of the young people concerned, and with their communities. The team includes social workers, psychologists, drugs workers, parenting workers, restorative workers, education workers and volunteers.

The team is committed to working with all young people, their parents and carers and victims without discrimination because of race, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

They want to help support each young person living in Somerset to have the best possible chance of achieving their potential.
