Connected Youth Justice

Seeking feedback on the draft ‘Young People Connected. Communities Protected.’ State Plan

The Department of Human Services (DHS) along with key partner agencies is co-designing a plan to provide vulnerable young people with connected supports, programs and services. A strong focus is being placed on support for young people to avoid and limit contact with the justice system and to address the over-representation of Aboriginal young people in the justice system.

The plan aims to strengthen connections with communities and supports through development of the ‘Young People Connected. Communities Protected.’ Blueprint and a range of delivery plans (currently in development) to detail the range of tangible actions to implement the Blueprint aims. The approach to co-designing a new plan has thus far included research, innovation, and cross-agency consultation and connections.
