What is the Youth Justice Service Video for Children – Barnet Youth Offending Service (2020)

Summary: Barnet youth offending service have shared the video created by children, for children describing the purpose and function of the youth justice service. 

 

 

Description:

Barnet youth offending service worked with children to co-produce a .be">short video for children which describes what the youth justice service is, Court Orders, support offered and expectations of the children.

This video should be a resource for children entering the service for the first time so they may understand what is expected in a child-friendly way.

 

 

Implementing the practice:

  • The children involved in the project shared their honest views in order to provide others with a relatable account of their experiences.
  • The children developed the video narrative in their own language using their own voices and working with an illustrator, created the images and story flow for the video.
  • The avatars were drawn by the young people to represent the different characters of the children speaking.
  • The hours spent on working on this project were counted as reparation hours.  
  • The project cost £2,500 to create.
