Evaluation library

Our aim is to provide youth justice professionals with accessible, relevant and objective information about the range of programmes in use across the youth justice system.

The Evaluation Library is the YJB's collection of appraised youth justice interventions, we provide a light-touch review to ensure it is of a good standard, although we are no longer able to rate or classify that evaluation.

Should you have any questions or concerns about any research or evaluation placed on the Youth Justice Resource Hub, please contact us

The YJB welcomes new additions to its ‘Evaluation Library’. Please email your evidenced interventions to us along with your rationale for inclusion using the submission form.
