Within the Trafford Youth Offending Service, there is the Prevention Team which looks to prevent young people from getting involved in offending/anti-social behaviour. We work with young people who have committed crimes to prevent them from engaging in any further offending behaviour. In order to do this we offer support to young people aged 8 to 17 years. This is done through projects such as the Youth Inclusion Support Panel (YISP) and Positive Activities for Young People (PAYP) which are explained:
The Youth Inclusion Support Panel works with young people between 8 and 13 years old who live in Trafford who do not have a final warning, but whom may be deemed to be at risk of offending.
PAYP provides young people at risk with the support and guidance and opportunity to undertake positive activities they need to avoid offending and/or to fulfil their true potential in education, training or employment.
