  1. Howard League – Re-imagining youth justice conference 2nd April 2014 Post YOT youth justiceKathryn Brooks & Ben ByrneSurrey Youth Support Service

  2. Almost every set of bad outcomes lends itself to two contrasting approaches: one that calls on individuals to adapt and one that demands changes in the environment Barry 2005

  3. Children’s rights, child development and international standards Responding informally and dampening down the system Re-balancing the ‘responsibilising’ agenda Relationships over referrals and resilience over risk Inclusion, integration and participation Restorative practice and the victim of youth crime

  4. “youthful behaviour … that does not conform to overall social norms and values is often part of the … growth process and tends to disappear spontaneously … with the transition to adulthood” Riyadah guidelines (1990)

  5. Retribution or resolution

  6. If there are two young people, with equal propensity to do wrong, and one is arrested and the other not, the one who is drawn into the criminal justice system will continue longer and harder with a criminal career. Little & Sodha (2012)

  7. “We are afraid to risk using simply our own warmth and caring, and as a result the thousands of therapy techniques which are becoming increasingly popular are intended to conceal rather than reveal.” Brandon 1982

  8. There is as yet no model that is a proven alternative to the large multi-disciplinary teams that operate in most YOTs, however active consideration needs to be given to the development of alternative approaches Keith Ibbetson 2013

  9. Youth disposal distributionand the impact of youth restorative interventions (YRIs)

  10. Beyond the YOT approach – the YSS An integrated, non-discrete service for young people who offend Restorative diversion Participation services not an offending service
