Reintegration and Transitions - Guidance for Local Authorities, Community Planning Partnerships and Service Providers, 28/09/11

The Scottish Government has published  guidance which aims to provide an over view of best practice within reintegration and transitions for young people under 18 who offend.

As this age group can cross over child and adult services it is important to recognise this to ensure that the transition process is as smooth as possible and that the service the young person receives meets their age and stage of development.

The guidance starts by giving an overview of definitions and legal requirements for young people depending on what system they fall into, or what their legal entitlements are. The research is then discussed to highlight the evidence for effectiveness in reintegration and transitions for young people, and the difference that this may include in relation to gender.

For full details see Reintegration and Transitions - Guidance for Local Authorities, Community Planning Partnerships and Service Providers which is available from the Scottish Government website.
