 “Prevention Is Better Than Court”

Strategic and Academic perspectives on Diversion, Participation and ‘unmet need’ in the Youth Justice System


Tom Dooks

Senior Manager │ Youth Justice Services (CE, CWaC, Halton & Warrington)


Sean Creaney

Lecturer in Psychosocial Analysis of Offending Behaviour │ Edge Hill University


In this free seminar Tom will present a model for diverting children away from the criminal justice system, and explore the strategic challenges inherent in designing, sustaining and scaling out diversionary schemes.

Sean will then examine the extent and nature of children’s participation in decision making in youth justice. He will also critically explore children’s ability to express agency and influence matters that affect them and discuss the challenges professionals experience when centralising the voice of the child.
