This order only applies to those young people who committed an offence before 30 November 2009. It has been replaced by, and is now part of, the Youth Rehabilitation Order.
A Supervision Order can last up to three years. A range of conditions can be attached to the Order when the sentence is used for more serious offences. These are called 'specified activities' and can last for up to 90 days. Examples of 'specified activities' might be participation in Intensive Supervision and Surveillance (ISS), drug treatment (for young people aged 16+), curfews or residence requirements which might require a young person to live in local authority accommodation for the period of the sentence.
A young person receiving a Supervision Order is also required to take part in activities set by the Youth Justice Service, which could include repairing the harm done by their offence either to the victim or the community and programmes to address their offending behaviour, such as anger management.
More information about sentences, orders and agreements can be found on the North Yorkshire Youth Justice Service website.
