As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

Toolkit on Diversion and Alternatives to Detention

Areas of special interest

The following topics require particular consideration in relation to diversion and alternatives.

• Conflict & post-conflict situations
• Over-represented groups (e.g. ethnic minorities)
• Substance abuse
• Disability & mental illness
• Children in street situations
• Gangs
• Girls / gender

It is beyond the scope of the current toolkit to examine these issues in detail. However, some documents are available which respond to these issues in the 'Resources / By theme' section of the toolkit.
