The Youth Offending Service takes most of its referrals from Police and the Courts, and provides the following services:

The Youth Offending Service is a multi-agency team, managed within the Children’s Services Department. The team has been fully operational since April 2000 and works with children and young people aged 10 – 17, and their parents/carers, to prevent youth offending. Services are also offered to victims. Local responsibility for the Youth Offending Service rests with Bath and North East Somerset Chief Executive. Nationally, the work of the YOS is overseen by the Youth Justice Board, which, in turn, reports to the Home Secretary.

The YOS and Compass are based at:
