Working with partners

Youth Justice partners have to work together in order to support effectively children, families and victims. A single service or organisation cannot support a child and their family to make and maintain positive changes that will support long term desistence or keep them safe.

It is essential that youth justice partners work in a method that support and sustains each others staff members too.

This section has information and practice concerning working effectively with partners. You can also access information pertinent to youth offending teams (YOT) working in collaboration with the YOT Boards to ensure best outcomes for children.
