South Australia’s Youth Justice State Plan 2020–2023 introduces how we will work with young people, communities, other government agencies and non-government organisations to deliver youth justice services.

The plan outlines the actions this government is taking to:

  • provide high quality services that reduce offending
  • support young people to make positive choices
  • reduce the over-representation of Aboriginal children and young people
  • recognise and support victims of crime

and at all times, consider the best interests and voices of vulnerable children and young people.
