Youth justice in Victoria is quite complex due to the public policy that affects the vulnerable and disadvantaged community, including families, parents, and young people. As a result, the communities’ safety is systemically compromised by youth offending and another form of violence. In addition, many young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds released to the community lack culturally appropriate rehabilitation and social support that reciprocally increase delinquency and unhealthy family relationships.
The youth offending and deteriorating family relationship has immense health impacts, leading to a series of family violence and other violent incidences. The family and youth justice program has two components of projects that build a family relationship: social cohesions and mentoring young people while in prisons and after they are released to the community.
