Child and Maternal Health Observatory - ChiMat




The Youth Justice section of the ChiMat website is intended for those with an interest in commissioning and delivering services for children and young people (and their families) whose behaviour puts them in contact or at risk of contact with the youth justice system. Given the wide-ranging needs and experiences of these children, it will be relevant for professionals working with children in almost every health, education and social care setting. It is aimed, in particular, at local health and youth justice services, local authority children's services, and voluntary organisations.


The content is being developed by the Department of Health and the Centre for Mental Health to support the Youth Justice Liaison and Diversion pathfinders as part of a national programme to establish diversion services in all police and court services by the end of 2014.
