Moray Youth Justice

The Moray Youth Justice Team works with young people aged 8-18 years.  The work is directed by the Scottish Government Youth Justice Plan as well as at a local level the Moray Youth Justice Strategy Group.

The key objectives are to reduce youth offending and the impact of this behaviour on communities throughout Moray.

The service utilises a variety of intervention techniques including:

Restorative Justice

Acceptable Behaviour Contacts (ABC)

Anger Management

Safer Lives Programme

Independent Living Programme

Mental Wellbeing Programme

Time to Grow Programme

The Ross Programme

ONTOC Programme

Parenting Programme

Self Esteem Through Outdoor Activities

The team also offer Intensive Support and Monitoring Service (ISMS).  This programme is used when the Childrens Reporter and Chief Social Work Officer agree that a young person meets the criteria for secure care arrangements.

Our key partners include social work teams, education police and our voluntary organisations.  This service is Moray wide.

Referral Process:

Young people are referred to Moray Youth Justice via the Childrens Reporter and the Youth Offending Review Group (YORG).
