Kirklees YOT is committed to using the arts as a
means of reconnecting young offenders with
education, training and employment opportunities,
and with their communities. We are interested
in creating long-term solutions to help young people
at risk of offending or re-offending and committing
crime or anti-social behaviour. Our experience
has shown that the arts have a significant and
unique role to play in this process.
The arts are capable of liberating the potential of marginalised young people who, for various reasons, have lost out.
Kirklees YOT's art-based projects also feature on the Yorkshire and Humber Arts in the Criminal Justice System website.
