Volunteer with the Youth Justice Service

We rely on members of the community to assist us in delivering some of our work with children and young people who have become involved in offending, especially when they have received a referral order.

A referral order is a contract imposed on a child or young person to

  • stop them from re-offending,
  • repair some of the harm that they have caused and
  • help them with other difficulties that they may be facing.

There are usually three people on a referral order panel including two from the local community.

Volunteer's responsibilities

You must live or work in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets or the City of London, be prepared to take part in an intensive training course and be able to devote several hours a week.
