NOTE: On 1 July 2019, Juvenile Justice became Youth Justice NSW as part of machinery of government changes. These changes included our move into the newly merged Department of Communities and Justice within the Stronger Communities cluster and are now reflected across our website. Our website URL currently remains as www.juvenile.justice.nsw.gov.au but will soon be changed to reflect the Youth Justice name. We apologise for any inconvenience. 


Youth Justice​

Youth Justice supervises and cares for young offenders in the community and in Youth Justice centres. It provides youth justice conferences for young offenders referred​ by police or the courts.

There are six Youth Justice centres across the state which accommodate young offenders and offer health, educational and spiritual services – including individual case management, specialised counselling, and training in job and living skills. There are also 35 Youth Justice community offices that provide community-based intervention for young offenders. JJ.jpg
