The Joint Support Program

The Joint Support Program seeks to emphasise outcomes, flexibility and a continuum of service delivery between Juvenile Justice and funded service providers through strong collaboration and case management processes, client-focused strategies and regular review meetings to ensure target outcomes are being achieved.

Target group

The target group for the Joint Support Program is young people under the supervision of Juvenile Justice within the community who have been assessed as having a medium to high risk of offending.

Joint Support Program service types

Juvenile Justice funds the following service types under the Joint Support Program:

  • Casework Support
  • Short Term Crisis Accommodation
  • Long term Accommodation Support
  • Job Readiness, Employment Placement and Support  
  • Relationship Intervention 
  • ​Mentoring

Outcome-based referrals

Outcome-based referrals are a key component of the Joint Support Program. A referral to a service provider will specify target outcomes for the individual young person based on a Juvenile Justice assessment and case plan.

Tender 2015

Juvenile Justice has completed an open Request for Tender (RFT) through NSW e-Tendering to select service providers to provide one or more of the service types in the required service locations.  Juvenile Justice has entered into three year funding agreements with the successful tenderers to provide Joint Support Program services for the period 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2019.
