Bristol Reparation Service
Support for young people subject to court orders.
Young people 10 to 18-years-old | Bristol
Catch22 provides a reparation service to the Bristol Youth Offending Team (YOT). We work with 10-18 year olds, and cover the city of Bristol and surrounding areas. Reparation activities are intended to ‘repair the harm’ by having the person with a conviction give something back to the community – be it directly to the victim or indirectly through completing unpaid work in the community.
What we do
Support is delivered through one-to-one sessions and group work within the community. Through this work, we aim to improve and maintain public areas including conservation work to benefit the local community. This encourages young people to reintegrate and take pride in where they live whilst paying back for their crime and often learning new skills.
We complete the work alongside the young person and give them space to reflect on their order and consider positive steps forward.
We strongly advocate the use of restorative justice and its benefits as part of the rehabilitation process, and build this into our support work wherever possible.
Under the Youth Justice Board requirements, any young person with an unpaid work element to their order, must be enhancing their work skills and/or education. To support this we offer the opportunity for young people to complete an approved gateway qualification through ASDAN.
