Bolton Youth Offending Team

11/11/2019

Having worked in Bolton myself for many years and having done work in the past with the Bolton YOT, they were some of the first people I approached about providing some free training to help them develop at no cost. The training they chose was focused on assessing mental capacity in young people and how best to respond when young people may not be able to make decisions for themselves about key aspects of their lives. This is usually due to factors such as brain injury or developmental difficulties and it is really important that we assess carefully whether vulnerable young people are able to make informed choices about important aspects of their lives.
