Targeted Responses to Youth Crime - Promotion Kit

 

The Targeted Responses to Youth Crime grants will support innovative solutions to reduce youth crime and re-offending, that build community confidence and form lasting, meaningful changes and connections for young people involved in the youth justice system.  

Solutions will be designed using evidence and community knowledge and delivered to meet the needs of young people, their families, and the broader community. 

All community members – family and kin, Elders, mentors, local businesses, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises – can be involved in supporting young people and influencing positive and long-lasting change to reduce offending behaviour.
