Welcome to the AYM

The Association of
Youth Offending Team Managers


The Association of Youth Offending Team Managers (AYM) is the professional association for Heads of Youth Offending Services and managers in Youth Offending Teams in England.

The Association is able to draw on the wealth of knowledge and the breadth of members’ experience to promote public understanding of youth crime issues and to play its part in shaping the youth crime agenda.

Our members run services providing community-based supervision for children and young people who offend. We also work closely with staff in secure units and young offender institutions to ensure that young people in custody have as smooth a transition as possible back in to the community.


Applying for membership is simple. Either join as an individual or your YOT can buy a group membership.
