This document outlines an evidence-based, alternative vision for a more effective and connected youth justice system in Western Australia. The report articulates a whole-of-system approach that responds to the underlying causes of offending to reduce crime, ensures the wellbeing of children and young people, and delivers safer and better futures for our most disadvantaged communities.

Developed over two and a half years, with the contributions and collective expertise of 40+ non-profit organisations, community leaders, justice experts, this is a document for policy-makers, covering the causes of youth offending, best practice, evidence-based program examples, specific directions for systemic reforms, and corresponding legislative frameworks.
