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.
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.
Juvenile Justice funds the following service types under the Joint Support Program:
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.
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.
The organisations contracted to deliver Joint Support Program services 1 July 2016 - 30 June 2019 are listed here.
