Evaluation of the Whole System Approach to Young People who Offend in Scotland, 17/06/15 [S]

An evaluation of the Scottish Government's Whole System Approach for young People who Offend (WSA).

The Whole System Approach was introduced in 2011 to provide a more robust and efficient mechanism for delivering the early intervention and support necessary for young people who offend, integrated with the approaches necessary to deal with the minority of young people who continue to commit the most serious offences.

The Scottish Centre for Crime & Justice Research were commissioned in October 2014 to carry out an evaluation of the process of implementation in 3 case study areas in Scotland and identify their initial progress towards the intended outcomes of the approach.

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
