VCOSS has numerous concerns about Victoria’s youth justice centres, including staff shortages, limited support and training for staff in trauma informed practice, noncompliance with the rules governing use of isolation and seclusion, and inadequate assessment and responses to young people’s complex needs.
Victoria was once considered a leader in youth justice initiatives.
There is a risk the recent punitive and regressive youth justice system initiatives will undermine our success and chances of treating offenders humanely and with the best chance of rehabilitation.
