Description:

The Children and Young People`s Youth Justice Plan is a process for producing a version of the statutory Youth Justice Plan, aimed specifically at children, young people and families. The Plan incorporates avatar images which explain key roles and help the reader understand how the plan fits together with the key people involved in its delivery. The method should ensure greater understanding of the strategic and operational priorities of a YOS for the people it is intended to help.

The plans has been well received by young people and their families, but also by partner agencies who have found the plan helpful in understanding the strategic and operational priorities of the YOS.
