Submission to Commissioner for Children on alternatives to detention for youth in Tasmania

Social Action and Research Centre Submission

This submission outlines Anglicare’s position in relation to building a strong Youth Justice system in Tasmania. The submission provides an alternative approach to the services and supports available to young people involved in the Child Protection and Youth Justice systems. It recommends the development of a cross-agency trauma-informed approach. These models advocate for an integrated and therapeutic continuum of care for young people negotiating the Child Protection and Youth Justice Systems
