The Targeted Youth Support Service (TYSS) is a new and innovative service focused on offering a range of specialist services to young people aged 13-18 and their families who are in need of additional support. Our teams include NEET, Community & Interventions, Youth & Family and Youth Offending.
During the recent HMIP Inspection, Peterborough Youth Offending Team were rated overall Good with areas of Outstanding with the report referring to our “skilled and experienced group of operational staff who are committed to delivering high-quality services”. The inspectorate team described “a powerful sense of purpose within the team and an impressive balance....between the sometimes conflicting demands of meeting children’s needs and managing the risk of harm to others that can result from negative behaviours.” This excellent outcome is testament to the dedication and commitment to young people by the team who continue to set high standards and work to further develop existing areas of practice.
The Youth Offending Service is a multi-disciplinary team delivering services to prevent and reduce offending behaviour amongst young people. A vacancy is available for an experienced practitioner who is able to work with young people, victims and volunteers. Applicants will need an NVQ level 3 or level 4 Diploma, Youth Justice Certificate in Effective Practice or recognised Restorative Justice Training or equivalent qualifications.
The role will find you working with young people known to the YOS, and the victims of their crimes, to discuss the impact of their offences and to explore the possibility of their involvement in the restorative process. You will support both parties through the various restorative options and will chair face to face restorative meetings. You will offer training to the wider team and ensure that victim safety and the victim’s voice is heard within risk planning processes. Another key part of the role will be to recruit, train and supervise volunteers to take part in Referral Order Panels. This is a part time role of 14.8 hours per week (2 days) and is supported by another role for the remainder of the week.
We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation, and the communities we serve.
