Yur’iinkin Youth service (Intensive Bail Initiative) is based on young people who are identified as at risk or currently involved in the Youth Justice system. Our Youth and Family practitioners will work closely with young people and their families to divert young people away from the Youth Justice system. Support offered can consist of Case management, cultural connectedness, activity-based initiatives to assist in early intervention, complying with bail conditions and avoid further periods of interaction with the Youth Justice system.

Aims & Objectives

The purpose of the Youth and Family Program is reconnecting young people and healing their connections to the broader community that will have significant positive outcomes. The initiative responds to the needs of young people who are at risk or currently involved with Queensland Police Services and or Youth Justice Services tailoring a wraparound response to both young persons and their families.

The aim is to support young people in their situation, including, those without orders and “at risk” of entering the Youth Justice space and while they are on bail, including those who are subject to a Conditional Bail Program (CBP) or Electronic Monitoring trial as a condition of bail.
