AYM Events

We run a number of events throughout the year. Please see the Dates for your diary for a summary.

Exec Meetings

The AYM Executive meets quarterly in April, June (including AGM), September and November or December to coincide with the Youth Justice Convention.


There are three AYM conferences per year, in autumn, spring and prior to the AGM in June. The AGM is for members only, however all AYM conferences are open to AYM members and YOT staff and other stakeholder agencies. Each year we invite key speakers to talk about topical issues, present new research findings or policy changes or showcase positive working being done in youth justice. The most recent dates and venues of each of these are shown below.  Information on previous conferences and speaker presentations can be found on our conference pages.

Regional Events

The AYM run regional events, generally throughout the spring and autumn.  The events aim to provide YOTs with up to date information on a variety of issues and include presentations from speakers on key issues, or workshops designed to help YOTs prepare for inspections and any major changes being implemented by the YJB or other legislative, or youth justice practice change.
