Aims:

  • We aim to support young people to understand youth justice processes and interventions with specific resources
  • We provide easy access for professionals to communication friendly resources
  • We aim to highlight to practitioners the type of resources that are needed to support young people through the youth justice system

 

 

Description:

ClearCut Communication (part of County Durham Youth Offending Service) provide award-winning resources and staff training by combining the expertise of youth justice professionals and a speech and language therapist. We help young people understand the youth justice system. Our work has been recognised with a Butler Trust Award in March 2016. The attached document below will provide you with more information in regards to the five resources, namely:

  • The ClearCut Screen Pack
  • ClearCut Youth Caution
  • The ClearCut Wordbuster
  • ClearCut Going to Court
  • ClearCut Thinking about Victims

 

 

Implementing the practice:

  • Every young person who attends County Durham Youth Offending service is screened using the ClearCut screening tool.
  • The ClearCut Youth Caution translation puts the complex official Youth Caution into simple language. Young people receiving a Youth Caution are supported by their case manager in advance of the caution being delivered and during delivery with the ClearCut Youth Caution translation.
  • All case managers carry a Wordbuster to explain youth justice words to young people and their families.
  • All young people due to attend court are supported using the Going to Court resource.
  • The Thinking about Victims resource is used as the primary victim awareness programme within county Durham Youth Offending service. It is completed by a case worker with the young person and the victim Liaison Officer with the victim. Both parties are encouraged to share their work via shuttle mediation.
