Toolkit on Diversion and Alternatives to Detention

Useful Diagram

This is an annotated and animated venn diagram consisting of three powerpoint slides.

The first slide:
• Summarises what diversion, alternatives, restorative justice and a child rights-based approach mean;
• Shows how they are distinct concepts, even though they often overlap with each other;
• Highlights what we should be aiming for ('child rights-based approaches to diversion and alternatives' as a minimum, and 'child rights-based, restorative justice approaches to diversion and alternatives' where possible and appropriate).

The second & third slides:
• Give some simple examples to demonstrate what the concepts and overlaps might look like in practice.
