Tameside youth justice service have provided the template they use when proposing an Intensive Referral Order for those children who are eligible for a Referral Order or Custody option.  The panel sits with the child and the parents/carers and agrees a draft Intensive Referral Order contract.

Implementing the practice:

  • The panel sits prior to Court and together with the child and parents/carers agree the contract details.
  • Following the child receiving a Referral Order, the panel meets again and review and sign the contract.
