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 the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) produces ‘Children and young people in conflict with the law: policy, practice and legislation’. This practice guide 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, students and anyone else with an interest in youth and criminal justice.
Seventeen sections cover a wide variety of themes including: children’s rights; risk management; mental health; diversity; restorative justice; adversity and trauma; and Diversion from Prosecution.
The guide is renewed every year to ensure the information we are providing is relevant, meaningful and accurate. Headline additions for 2023 include the Children’s Care and Justice Bill, currently making its way through Holyrood, and the recently published Redesign Report from the Children’s Hearings System Working Group.
To ensure that the information we are providing is relevant, accurate and meaningful, this guide is reviewed annually. The current revision was published in June 2023. Please get in touch at email@example.com if you have any queries or wish to access a specific section.
