The Community Offender Health team provides health support to children and young people who have committed a criminal offence. The team receive referrals from the Police and work alongside the Youth Offending team. Team members complete a health assessment with the young person to identify any health needs, before referring to the relevant service, such as CAMHS, Younger Minds and substance misuse services. The team also works with young people on issues such as anger management and self-esteem.
The team cover the whole of Staffordshire and are based at Youth Offending Team offices at Liberty House in Hanley, Seabridge Community Building in Newcastle, Anson House in Stafford and The Old House in Lichfield.
