Introduction to Youth Justice in Angus
What do you think of this website?
Take the Angus Youth Justice Website survey.
The vast majority of young people in Angus play an active and positive role in our community and are a great source of optimism for our future. Youth Justice Services meet the needs and deeds of children and young people who offend or who are at risk of offending. The aim is to improve the speed and quality of service provision to reduce offending and re-offending and improve outcomes for vulnerable children through the Hearings system. In addition to providing input that will allow children to meet their full potential, a complete range of services is available to address the behaviour and developmental needs of the minority of our young people who are involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in, offending behaviour.
Youth Justice services need to be effectively targeted and tailored to ensure that the young people who need them can address their behaviour and work towards reaching their full potential. The measures range from preventative and diversionary initiatives aimed at those on the periphery of offending through to intensive community based services and secure accommodation for our most troubled (and troublesome) young people.
