To oversee the delivery of an effective Youth Offending Service for the Local Authority. This includes leading on strategic and operational management of the service, diverting young people from engaging in offending behaviour and from becoming involved in gangs, reducing first time entrants, reducing re-offending and the use of custody, improving outcomes and life chances for children and young people.
