Parenting

Sheffield Youth Justice Service aims to provide support to parents and carers on a voluntary and statutory basis.  All our practitioners will work with parents and carers and provide support to them and the wider family as part of our work to prevent offending.

Parenting support provides parents/carers the opportunity to build upon their existing skills and abilities in managing their child's behaviour that puts them at risk of offending.
