Youth Justice Nursing Service

Who are we?

We are a specialist nursing service which provides health needs assessments to children and young people within the criminal justice system. We are part of the wider Children in Care and Adoption Team for the city and county.


What do we do?

We reduce health inequalities and improve health outcomes for vulnerable children and young people who are under the supervision of the Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Youth Justice Services. 

We deliver health interventions for 10 to 19-year-olds to:

  • improve psychological wellbeing, emotional and mental health
  • promote healthy eating and lifestyle choices
  • promote and increase uptake of the immunisation programme
  • reduce teenage pregnancy and improve sexual health through contraception advice, screening and offering C-Card
  • reduce the impact of substance misuse and reduce avoidable injuries and harm

We also support the wider Youth Justice Service and court processes by contributing to reports and risk and vulnerability assessments.

Service opening hours

8am - 5.30pm, Monday-Friday.
