Custody and Community
The needs of young people in the youth justice system can only be met by a holistic system which works with them and deals with their needs whichever part of the system they are currently in - those environments traditionally seen as custody (Young Offender Institutions) and community (outside of secure institutions working with Youth Offending Teams/Services) sectors.
We think it is important to create greater integration between these two environments, using programmes such as resettlement, along with all sectors developing a more complete understanding of the roles played by workers from all sectors.
This part of the site aims to promote the work of both sectors. It particularly concentrates on raising awareness of how young justice professionals are working together to meet the needs of young people in the youth justice system.
The Youth Justice Resource Hub needs you! We are looking for examples of positive partnership work, short case studies about the roles of different workers in both sectors and generally any other information that you think would be useful and helpful. Please contact us if you would like more infomation or for a submission.
