Abstract

This article reports on an evaluation of recently established projects in Scotland, which apply a holistic approach to working with young people who commit offences. In this article we shall briefly describe the underpinning philosophy of the agency running these projects, the datagathering methods and findings related to the young people referred during 2002-3. First we outline key features of current understandings of youth crime and justice, child welfare and service delivery, which are relevant to the service model. Some of these were explicitly espoused, while others have been more implicit or potential in the approach.
