Youth Justice Service

How we support young offenders

Here at Oldham Youth Justice Service we are committed to ensuring victims  are treated with respect and are listened to.

We recognise that when you are harmed by crime it can be a really difficult time. You may have suffered financially, physically or emotionally which can impact on your life.

We really hope that as a service we are able to help in some way. We are determined to help you in any way we can.

It can leave you feeling empowered and gives you the opportunity to have your say on what has happened and have any questions answered .
