Much of our work involves working collaboratively with our clients to improve outcomes for vulnerable young people. Part of this work is focused on providing research, evaluation, strategic and operational support to clients working in the area of youth justice.
As such, we were pleased this month that the LGA has published two reports which we conducted alongside Chanon Consulting. The first report identifies the promise of taking a public health approach to reducing violence. This report recognises that a public health approach to reducing violence holds great promise as it recognises both the multi-factorial causes of violence, but also that reducing violence will work best with a co-ordinated response across public services. This report can be accessed here.
The second report explores the link between family violence and youth offending and can be accessed here. This report explores evidence based approaches and interventions for breaking the cycle for young people who experience family violence and go on to be involved in youth offending.
