Support for those seeking help with young people who are at risk of offending behaviour

The Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) is dedicated to making improvements in youth justice, contributing to better lives for young people, their families and communities.

The CYCJ team provides free and confidential support to those who are seeking help with a child or young person who is either involved in offending behaviour, or at risk of being so. Through three workstreams (practice development, research and knowledge exchange) the CYCJ offers advice, events and training and resources. This includes the Journey through Justice, designed to support young people who have entered the criminal justice system for the first time, practice guidance on all aspects of youth justice and findings from the latest research.

CYCJ is also home to the Interventions for Vulnerable Youth (IVY) project, the UK’s only specialised service providing support to young people with complex psychological needs and high risk behaviour.  

The Centre is keen to reach out to parents and carers who may be in need of support in relation to a child whose behaviour is  of concern, or who has become involved in the criminal justice system. They can be contacted via or by calling 0141 444 8622.
