Committed to improving youth justice in the NT

The Northern Territory Government is committed to implementing a range of youth justice initiatives to provide enhanced life outcomes for young people across the Northern Territory.

A number of these initiatives are currently being implemented to provide restorative practice and rehabilitation for young people caught up in the youth justice system so they can reintegrate into the community and make better informed life decisions. This is supported by a range of health and education programs that engage with young people and equip them with the life skills needed to turn their behaviour around.

As part of our action plan to make this happen, a Statement of Commitments has been developed, with Territory Families the lead agency responsible for implementing many of these initiatives and reforms in partnership with key stakeholders.
