Intensive Bail Initiative (IBI)
The purpose of the Intensive Bail Initiative (IBI) is about reconnecting young people and healing young peoples’ connections. The initiative responds to the needs of young people who are known repeat / recidivist offenders with complex needs and their family members. The aim is to support young people on bail, including those who are subject to a Conditional Bail Program (CBP) or Electronic Monitoring trial as a condition of bail. Support is available to young people in contact with the Queensland Police Service / Youth Justice Co-Responder Team (CRT) through the Community Co-Responder component of IBI.
The Bail Support Practitioner supports young people to successfully complete their bail/order and meet any conditions related to that, whilst also addressing the issues which may be bringing them into conflict with the law. The role provides practical, mainly outreach, support to young people in line with their case plan and in consultation with the Kurbingui IBI team and other key stakeholders.
