National Standards for Youth Justice Services

Download the National Standards for Youth Justice Services.

The national standards set the Secretary of State's minimum expectations for youth justice service delivery and practice, consistent with ensuring; 

  • delivery of effective practice in youth justice services

  • safeguarding of children and young people who come into contact with youth justice services 

  • protection of the public from the harmful activities of children and young people who offend

The national standards are designed to be read in conjunction other sources of practice advice.

We have produced a PowerPoint presentation to help communicate the key changes to the national standards to staff and local partners.
