Are You An Appropriate Adult?

You could help a young person in trouble with the Youth Offending Team

Wandsworth’s Youth Offending Team is asking people who live or work in the borough to become an ‘Appropriate Adult’ when young people, or adults with mental health or learning difficulties, who are being interviewed at Wandsworth Police Station are not able to have a family member or family friend with them.

Being an Appropriate Adult is a vital and rewarding role and the team may be able to provide support toward gaining a qualification.

Wandsworth’s Youth Offending Team works with young people who have been, or are at risk of getting in trouble with the police, who are on bail or remand or who have received a court order.

To find out more about becoming an Appropriate Adult, call Donna Buffong or Tracy Hodges on 020 8871 6222 or email
