Centre Information

This building is located opposite the Town Hall.

The building has access to both drop in and booked appointments where young people can access support and advice around benefits, including help to start a claim with the Job Centre Plus under 18's Adviser, information, advice and guidance about options, making career decisions and employment, apprenticeship and training opportunities and information and support around contraception, sexual health and relationships, in partnership with Rotherham Integrated Sexual Health Service.

Young people have the opportunity to talk in confidence about any issues or concerns; including emotional health and wellbeing and have the opportunity for referral and signposting to other services and agencies who can help meet their specific needs. The building also houses the Youth Offending Team who work across the borough with young people who are involved in Youth Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour as part of a multi-agency partnership with the aim of preventing offending and re-offending.


What is available at the Eric Manns Building?

The Eric Mann's duty team offer a drop-in Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm (10.30am till 5.00pm on Wednesdays) where young people can access:

  • Support and advice around benefits, including help to start a claim with the Job Centre Plus under 18's Adviser.
  • Information, advice and guidance about options and making career decisions.
  • Access to a wide range of vacancy information including employment opportunities, apprenticeships and other supported training.
  • Advice about how to find the right job or training opportunity, including help with CV writing, interview skills and on-line applications.
  • The opportunity to talk in confidence to a Youth Support Worker about any issues or concerns. We can provide links to specific agencies who will help meet your needs and support you further.
  • The Youth Offending Service is based in the Eric Mann's Building and works across the borough with young people who are involved in Youth Crime and Anti- Social Behaviour. The Youth Offending team is a multi-agency partnership with the one aim of preventing offending and re-offending.
  • We work with all young people 10 -17 who have received a Court Order requiring they be supervised by the team and young people who have not been to court but are referred by the Police. We have officers in court to provide a service and also offer an appropriate adult service for young people being held in the police station. We will see young people in the community and custody.
  • There is no one reason why young people commit offences and what leads young people into crime is often the result of a number of factors. For this reason as well as Youth Offending case managers we have a number of specialists within the team to assist in preventing offending. These include heath and drug workers, an accommodation worker and staff skilled in programme development and helping young people return to their community when they have been in custody.
  • We also work closely with the police, schools, mental health, prisons and our colleagues to ensure we provide the help to stop young people offending.
  • Our work is based on the risk of re-offending and all young people are assessed using a tool devised by the Youth Justice Board for this purpose. The amount of contact young people have with the service is based on risk, and can vary from 1 hour every fortnight to 25 hours a week. We will also assess the risk young people pose to others and the risk they pose to themselves. We will keep all the information we have on young people confidential but are legally required to share it to prevent offending or for child protection purposes.
