Youth justice intensive bail supervision program

 

Overview

This program provides an intensive bail supervision service for young people aged 10-18 years who are at risk of being remanded or re-remanded. It aims to divert young people from future involvement in the criminal justice system. This service includes an Indigenous-specific component, the Koori intensive bail supervision program, and is provided by the Victoria Department of Human Services.

Young people involved in the program are provided with case management to reduce the risk of them reoffending while on bail and assisting them to comply with their bail conditions. The program also helps to address their needs related to accommodation, education and training, employment, health and development, family and other matters. The program is voluntary and young people must consent to participating in the program.

This program is only available to young people in the north, west and south metropolitan regions of Victoria. The Koori intensive bail supervision program is available in the metropolitan regions and also in the Gippsland, Hume, and Barwon South West regions. This program aims to provide culturally specific support to Indigenous young people.
