Abstract

The Whole System Approach for Children and Young People who offend, introduced in 2011, represented a significant shift to more clearly focus on diversion, early intervention and holistically responding to children involved in offending. Since the introduction of the Whole System Approach, there has been a significant reduction in children and young people’s contact with the justice system (police contact, referrals to the Children’s Hearing System, and number of young people in Young Offender Institutions). This presentation discusses the Whole System Approach, what it is, the rationale behind this, how it has attempted to respond to the complexity of the lives of children involved in offending, and what has been achieved.
