Library of Effective Approaches
Purpose of the library
The purpose of the Library of Effective Approaches collection is to:
- provide practitioners and commissioners in youth justice with easy access to evaluated approaches from other services and providers, from a range of backgrounds, both in the community and secure establishments
- allow those developing and using innovative approaches to share what they have found to be effective in working with young people and delivering youth justice services
We hope that the library is a helpful reference tool for professionals, who will be able to access a comprehensive collection of well-evidenced approaches and interventions.
What can you find in the Library of Effective Approaches?
Approaches catalogued within this library have been classified by the YJB internally or the YJB’s Effective Practice Classification Panel, as being of a standard to suggest that there is evidence to support their effectiveness.
You can find out more about how these approaches have been classified, in the YJB's Standards of Evidence.
To search the approaches listed within the Library please use the relevant filters above. You can also use the search box to search for a term you are looking for. This will also resturn results from across the entire Hub. The results will indicate what part of the Youth Justice Resource Hub the entry can be found on.
