AOPM - Communities for Youth Justice

We support thousands of volunteers to support youth in trouble with the law in England & Wales. We deliver community-led restorative justice, which raises victim satisfaction and reduces reoffending.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Communities for Youth Justice (CYJ) is the national body supporting 6,000 volunteers who help to make the youth justice system more effective across England and Wales. These dedicated volunteers are trained to play a key role as community members of local youth offender panels – rebuilding the confidence of victims, reducing the likelihood of re-offending, and rehabilitating young offenders.

    CYJ volunteers are at the forefront of crime reduction and social reintegration. We aim to build and sustain a vibrant network of volunteers to improve the work with young people in trouble with the law. The Justice Minister said: "the direct engagement of volunteers through panels is a clear example of how we can better engage and empower local people. "
