  • Outcomes ladder poster (overview of the different outcomes available to the Court)
  • Court language poster (gives overview of language that may be used during the Court process)
  • Layout of the Courtroom for Canterbury, Folkestone and Medway



Implementing the practice:

  • Participation apprentices and Youth Justice practitioners share the resources with children prior to attending Court, or at Court.
  • Some of the resources are also available within the Court waiting room.
