… the latest youth justice information, training and research at the touch of a button


The Youth Justice Resource Hub is run by the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales (YJB), which is a non-departmental public body responsible for overseeing the youth justice system in England and Wales.


The Youth Justice Resource Hub was established in 2016 and is a platform to share practice and, where available, evidence and research.  It is for youth justice professionals, academics, researchers, students and volunteers.


Most of the content on this site was created by and belongs to the wider youth justice sector. The majority of the submissions have not been quality assured or validated by the YJB (apart from those in the evidence and research section) and it is therefore not possible to say with confidence whether a programme is effective or not.


Please note that some of the material uploaded prior to 2020 may not be consistent with YJB’s Central Guiding Principle of Child First, this could include the language used or the structure of the intervention being shared.  You may also find of interest the child first checklist.

The Youth Justice Resource Hub contains many information sources across a range of categories. To help you navigate your way around the site we have created the following core categories:

  • Practice (intervention programmes, toolkits and reference documents)
  • Professional Development (information, knowledge and resources to support professional development as well as working effectively with volunteers in the youth justice system)
  • Research and evidence (evidenced based intervention programmes and relevant evidenced knowledge)
