Supervision orders may be made by the Court where it is considered that a young person needs a period of statutory support and supervision.
The supervision order should be designed to tackle the full range of offender needs associated with the offending (identified by ASSET) over a period of time.They can last for a maximum of three years.
Contact with the young person
- Initial contact between the Youth Justice Service officer and the young person and parent(s)/carer(s), where possible, must take place before the end of the next working day following the court hearing.
- The minimum contact must be once a week for the first 12 weeks, fortnightly for the next three months and monthly thereafter, unless assessed as presenting a high level of risk, in which case contact should revert to at least weekly.
Assessment and plan
An intervention plan must be prepared in 15 working days . They must be based on risk factors associated with the offending identified in Asset and set out arrangements to address them.
- All assessments must consider the needs of the victim and plans will include restorative processes.
- They will take account of plans made for the young person by other agencies (eg Social Services, Education, Health).
- The plan or contract should be discussed, agreed and signed by the young person and his/her parent(s)/carer(s).
- The content of supervision should address the needs identified in ASSET and include restorative processes.
