Youth justice Te manatika taiohi

Youth justice is for tamariki and rangatahi who have, or are alleged to have committed an offence. 

It gives them a genuine opportunity to change their lives for the better without getting a criminal record, and to make positive strides forward.

We aim to work in partnership with others to address the underlying factors that contribute to offending as early as possible, to reduce the potential for lifelong offending. We also want to better support victims to participate in youth justice processes.
