The new Programme for Government, Our Shared Future, commits to the implementation of a new Youth Justice Strategy, drawing on learnings from the Icelandic model and emphasising prevention, early intervention and inter-agency collaboration.

The Deputy will be aware that my Department published a draft Youth Justice Strategy earlier this year. The draft Strategy is currently being finalised with reference to the outcome of the recent public consultation and the views of key stakeholders. It is my intention to bring to Government and to publish the final version of the Youth Justice Strategy in early 2021.
