Supporting and Managing Children Who Pose a High Risk

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The Whole System Approach (WSA) is the Scottish Government’s programme for addressing the needs of children involved in offending. The ethos is based on the principles of ‘Getting It Right For Every Child’, and includes evidence from the Edinburgh Study of Youth, Transitions and Crime, promotes a holistic response across all systems and agencies to children which should lead to the majority of children who offend being diverted from statutory measures, compulsory supervision, formal justice systems, and prosecution wherever possible, through early intervention and supports. The WSA also extends to children who become subject to statutory measures, and sets out clear expectations that the Children’s Hearing System (the CHS) and the Courts will seek robust community alternatives to detention. Where detention is deemed essential, wherever possible this should be in a secure care rather than prison setting.
