Your child (and you if your child is under 16) will receive a letter from a Youth Justice Conference manager. It will include the name of the convenor for your conference and contact details for the manager.
The convener will meet with you and your child to prepare for the conference. They will also meet with any of your child's co-offenders and their families.
The convener will meet with the victim(s) of your child's offence prior to the conference.
At the conference your child and the victim may agree to an outcome plan. This plan will be designed to make up for the harm caused by your child.
