The youth justice pre-family group conference case consultation

Updated: 12 January 2017

What's Important To Us

When children and young people offend we need to identify what is driving their behaviour. Consultation prior to the family group conference between practitioners will help determine the appropriate and individual response to the child or young person based on assessment of their current and future risk of offending and the underlying causes of their offending behaviour. It is important to establish the level of risk and need as soon as possible, and early assessment is critical. Collating and capturing information obtained, actions taken and decisions made supports good social work practice. The offending profile was developed as an initial screen and recording tool of assessment related information for children and young people who offend.

This key information outlines the requirements when completing a youth justice pre-family group conference case consultation.
