St Basils: Youth Justice Accommodation Pathway

The Youth Justice Accommodation Pathway (YJAP) is a practical tool that local authorities, criminal justice agencies and other partners can use to plan accommodation and support services for young people aged 16 – 25 who have been involved with the criminal justice system. It has been developed in collaboration with agencies working with and for young people with an offending history, and is informed by the voices of young people who have experienced homelessness and criminal justice systems.

St Basils would like to thank the organisations, individuals and young people who generously gave their time and shared their expertise whilst we were developing this document. This involved a mixture of encouragement at the early stages, attending consultation meetings, sharing of good practice, reading and offering feedback to the draft documents.

Partnership working on every level will improve the outcomes for young people involved in the criminal justice system. The agencies/partnerships can be found on page 3 of the attached document; the input from services and the individuals within them, have all played their parts in contributing to the Youth Justice Accommodation Pathway.
