Each panel will have a minimum of two members who are volunteers from the local community.
The panel members will work with a member of the Youth Offending Service.
The young person and their carer will attend along with any other adult who may be able to offer guidance.
The victim of the offence will be invited to attend the panel and may choose to bring someone to support them.
If a victim feels unable to attend the panel, they can ask for their views to be represented by someone else, often the youth offending service police officer, in order that their views can be taken into account the meeting.
