A guide to Youth Justice in Scotland: policy, practice and legislation

To support those who work with children and young people who offend or who are at risk of offending, CYCJ produces guidance sections to youth justice in Scotland, incorporating the latest legislation and policy changes, updated annually. This is valuable for academics, educators, practitioners and anyone else with an interest in youth and criminal justice. Download the current sections here.

To discuss how we can work with you, please get in touch at or call 0141 444 8622.

Events and training

Events and training opportunities range from national conferences to skills training and networking opportunities. These include the CYCJ roadshows, tailored to meet the local needs of practitioners across Scotland. A range of online training materials are available for those unable to attend events.

Supporting Scotland’s Youth Justice Vision

CYCJ will be supporting the Scottish Government with the implementation of ‘Justice for children and young people: a rights respecting approach’. Published in June 2021, this builds on Scotland’s youth justice strategy which concludes in 2020. Details and information will be shared here.
