  • To reduce the looked after offending rates within Sunderland and the childrens homes within Sunderland.



The attached protocol was devised following liaison with Derbyshire YOT regarding their protocol about offending by children in care 2015. This resulted in Sunderland Local Authority (LA) making a submission to the Lord Laming independent review – Keeping children in care out of trouble in order to highlight the need to tackle the looked after offending rates in Sunderland.

The protocol covers the LA childrens homes in Sunderland and it aims to reduce the unnecessary criminalisation of children’s behaviours whilst living in residential care through the use of Diversion Panels and Restorative Justice approaches.
