Juvenile Justice works in partnership with other human services and justice agencies. These include...
The Department of Education and Communities (DEC) operates education and training units in each of the juvenile justice centres so that young people can continue their studies while in custody.
JJ and DEC are committed to work together on the education and training of young people in custody. Both agencies have agreed to deliver programs that:
improve detainees' education and training standards and their confidence and skills to re-enter education, training or the workforce after they leave custody,
facilitate the building of educational, vocational and training pathways for young people, and
support the management of juvenile justice centres.
The NSW Justice Health Service provides medical services for young people in detention through clinics in each juvenile justice centre.
Youth Justice Conferencing works directly and collaboratively with NSW Police in fulfilling the agencies' responsibilities for the diversion from court and custody of eligible young people under the Young Offenders Act 1997.
Juvenile Justice maintains a Joint Support Program which engages community organisations to support and assist our young people with the aim of reducing the likelihood of their re-offending.
Some of the key aspects of the Joint Support Program include:
