Info Sheet: Making Connections: Supporting the identification of care leavers in the justice system

On November 24, 2016, CYCJ and CELCIS facilitated the Making Connections workshop, which was attended by over 40 youth and criminal justice and throughcare/aftercare practitioners and managers from across local authorities, Police Scotland, the Scottish Prison Service, and third sector organisations.

The purpose of this workshop was to support the implementation of the agenda for change under the Youth and Criminal Justice section of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant, particularly the protocol to support identification. This provided an opportunity to explore current practice in identifying and supporting care leavers; share good practice examples; and reflect on any actions needed by individuals and organisations to improve practice, as well as to begin thinking about how these could be implemented.

These notes summarise the main points discussed and issues raised, and actions for taking forward. Please contact with any queries.
