ISBN: 9781788510561

Report on the progress that has been made since the publication of the Youth Justice Strategy in 2015.

Executive Summary

The Youth Justice strategy was published in June 2015. Our commitment to implementing the strategy was reaffirmed in the Programme for Government which highlighted the priorities to advance the whole system approach, improve life chances and develop capacity and improve the workforce and to report on progress by June 2017.

The report highlights key work which has been delivered in the last two years including engagement with community based planning partners across Scotland; drawing on the voice and experience of young people and data to drive improvements; and the development of a framework for improving outcomes in Youth Justice to assist the workforce.

The report also outlines key next steps around engagement and reflection on what evidence and data tells us.
