National Crisis in Youth Justice
A brilliant presentation on Youth Justice at Federal Council from our teams in each State recognizing the challenges each jurisdiction faces are the same, and as such we need a national response on health safety and wellbeing for YJ staff in order to hold agencies accountable.
The current prosecution in Victoria and the plea on penalty attempt by the responsible agency as reported by the channel 9 journalist sums up the attitude to OHS by the agencies.
Changes to our youth justice system must be implemented across the country.
CPSU will sponsor a national forum in early 2020 bringing all our Youth Justice reps together to develop and campaign for systematic change.
