How we can keep justice-involved young people connected to their local communities?

Sanne Oostermeijer speaking at our network launch in 2018.

Watch this inspiring short film from the Netherlands. See how the Ministry of Justice and Security is helping young people return to their local communities, connect with school and family, with small scale regional facilities designed to fit around a young person’s life.

We believe this model is a better option for Victoria because a large scale youth prison, located in a remote place, disconnects young people from their community, support, family and their local schools.

You can read more about this project from our advisory group member, Dr Sanne Oostermeijer, co-creator of Local Time, here.
