A Guide to Youth Justice in Scotland: updated for 2017

The updated sections for ‘A Guide to Youth Justice in Scotland’ are now available on the CYCJ website.

Whether you are a practitioner, researcher or educator, you should be familiar with the latest policy and practice legislation in youth justice.

That’s why CYCJ produces ‘A Guide to Youth Justice in Scotland’. This resource is aimed at practitioners and managers who work with children and young people who offend or who are at risk of offending. It is also valuable for academics, educators and anyone else with an interest in youth and criminal justice.

The guide is supported by the Scottish Government’s Youth Justice Strategy, which was refreshed and launched in June 2015. It also incorporates changes resulting from the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

To ensure that the information we are providing is relevant, accurate and meaningful, this guide is reviewed annually. The next revisions will be made in June 2018. Please get in touch at cycj@strath.ac.uk if you have any queries or wish to access a specific section.
