Youth Justice Conference Convenor Portal

Youth Justice Conferencing is a formal, legal process which consolidates a wide range of practices based on restorative principles. It aims to give the victim(s) a voice and allows the offender(s) to address the harm they have caused, rather than dealing with the matter(s) via Court.

This page provides Youth Justice Employees and Youth Justice Conference Convenors, involved in the management and administration of Youth Justice Conferences, with the resources to successfully complete their roles and responsibilities in line with the Part 5 of the Young Offenders Act 1997.
