Action Plan Order

Since 30th November 2009 this order can no longer be made by the court. It was abolished under the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2009 and has been replaced by the Youth Rehabilitation Order.

An Action Plan Order is an intensive, community-based programme lasting 3 months. The order is supervised by the Youth Offending Team/Service. The programme developed by the YOT is specifically tailored to the risks and needs of the young person. It can include repairing the harm done to the victim of the offence or the community, education and training, attending an Attendance Centre or a variety of other programmes to address a young person's offending behaviour.
