Practice Examples

What can you find in the Practice Examples?

The majority of the submissions of examples of youth justice practice, that the YJB receive have not been evaluated. These submissions are therefore unable to objectively demonstrate their effectiveness and are not included on the Library of Effective Approaches. These submissions are placed in the ‘Practice Examples’ section of the YJ Resource Hub.

The examples in this section provide insight into how various aspects of youth justice practice is being implemented by different local partners. They are presented here in response to requests from practitioners delivering the programmes.

To search the Practice Examples, please use the search box or the ‘Browse by Topic’ tag cloud situated in the banner. The results will indicate what part of the Youth Justice Resource Hub the entry can be found on.

The interventions listed here are free unless otherwise mentioned. Where the submissions state that there are costs involved, these might cover anything from materials, equipment or room hire to purchasing an entire approach. Anyone interested in learning more about an intervention or associated costs should always approach the individual contact in the first instance for more details.
