Youth Justice Teams
The Social Work Youth Justice Teams are based in each of the Area Social Work Services and are responsible for the case management of young people aged 12-21 who are involved in both the Children's and Adult systems.

In conjunction with other agencies, workers will undertake assessments, write reports for the Children's Hearing and the Courts, develop individual action plans based on the young person's needs and risks, undertake direct work with the young person to address these needs and risks and review progress and developments regularly.
