Youth Rehabilitation Order
The Youth Rehabilitation Order (YRO) is a generic community sentence for young offenders and combines a number of sentences into one generic sentence. It is the standard community sentence used for the majority of children and young people who offend. It simplifies sentencing for young people, while improving the flexibility of interventions. The YRO came into effect on 30 November 2009 as part of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. The YRO represents a more individualised risk and needs-based approach to community sentencing, enabling greater choice from a 'menu' of requirements. Practice guidance for youth offending teams

We have produced non-statutory practice guidance for YOTs on the YRO and other youth justice provisions of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. It outlines the YRO and other key youth justice related provisions of the Act to enable YOT practitioners and managers to understand these legislative changes and prepare for their implementation.
