Core+ | Youth Justice

We help youth offending teams and local authorities make their communities safer. We do this by providing innovative tools that help youth offending teams identify trends, determine effective prevention strategies and coordinate intervention activity.


> Get in touch

We understand the burden of recording and statutory reporting local authority youth offending teams face. Servelec is committed to helping reduce these burdens, save time and manage risk, freeing you up to do what you do best – support vulnerable young people.

Identifying potential issues quickly

Managers need to be able to monitor caseloads and identify potential issues quickly. Service Heads, MI managers and Performance analysis teams are being asked to provide more and more performance and evaluation information to satisfy management boards, support funding bids and generate accurate reports on both local and national initiatives.

Accurate reporting

Servelec's Core+ | Youth Justice module has been in operation since 2013 and is live in 29 authorities across the UK. It is delivered through our tried and tested Core+ Framework allowing easy integration with other Servelec modules. Servelec's Core+ | Youth Justice module has been specifically designed for Youth Offending Teams to record all aspects of Youth Justice Case Management. Our Youth Justice module strikes the right balance between recording information and accurately reporting on the data.

Giving practitioners more time to engage with young people

Servelec’s Core+ | Youth Justice module provides a system which reduces the recording burden on Youth Justice practitioners, allowing them the time to concentrate on engaging with young people. Whether it is the recording of offence and outcome detail or assessment planning and intervention, the Core+ | Youth Justice module takes the strain and reuses information throughout the system, reducing duplications and the need for extra work.

Allows for error checking and data cleaning

Core+ fully meets the requirements of the YJB AssetPlus framework allowing Youth Offending Teams to complete YOT to YOT transfers across the Youth Justice Asset Framework (YJAF). Servelec’s YJMIS data extract tool applies to all current versions of the schema and is in line with the requirements of the YJB. Our extract tool allows for error checking and data cleaning within the system, prior to upload.

Easy integration with other Core+ modules

Youth Justice is part of our Core+ system, meaning it can integrate easily with our CCIS, Youth Activity, Families and S.M.A.S.H modules, allowing the sharing of information and generating cost savings on licences and operating costs when deployed across multiple teams.
