The Federation seeks to respond to the challenge of youth crime by creating and promoting a sustainable national approach to deliver a transformational change in the services provided for young people who have offending backgrounds; who are serving custodial or community sentences; or who are at risk of offending.

An approach designed both to reduce the current unacceptable levels of reoffending and to break the generational cycle of offending that prevents so many young offenders sustain the transition to independent, crime-free adulthood.
