Introducing Glasgow Youth Court Video

The Glasgow Youth Court is a judicially-led initiative, which is supported by Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (GCHSCP). It has been operational since June 2021. Functioning within the Glasgow Sheriff Court, it is for young people aged 16 – 24.

CYCJ was commissioned by GCHSCP to undertake research into Glasgow Youth Court. One thing we discovered was that young people often didn’t know what to expect when preparing for Youth Court. How is it different to adult court? What is an SDS? What should l wear? With the help of Kevin Lafferty (STAF) we put together this video to address some of these questions for the benefit of young people, criminal justice social workers and other Youth Court professionals.
