Service praise

Have your say

NORFOLK’S Youth Offending Team (YOT) has been rated as above average.

The service’s performance was rated as part of a new inspection regime from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation (HMIP).

Scores of 70 in safeguarding, 62 in risk of harm to others and 75 in likelihood of reoffending put the county’s team just above the national averages.

Liz Calderbank, from HMIP, said Norfolk’s results were ‘encouraging’ and that staff were ‘committed’.
