Youth Diversion Project

Youth Diversion Project

KWM is working in close collaboration with our community partners as part of a Youth Diversion Project.

This law and procedure reform project is focussed on the disproportionately low rates of diversion from court for young Aboriginal people coming into contact with police.

The project involves detailed case file analysis, stakeholder consultations, and legislation and policy review. To date, the project has identified the need for and facilitated the introduction of specialist children & young person procedures and further reform considerations. Our work is ongoing.
