Going for Gold

'Going for Gold - developing effective services for young adults throughout the criminal justice process' offers a step by step guide to developing young adult services based on the experience of organisations that have already done it.

In partnership with the three main T2A pilots and Social Justice Solutions, Clinks has developed a guide that shows why it is important to develop a unique approach for young adults as well as how local approaches could be implemented. 'Going for Gold' provides senior strategic leads and commissioners with a benchmark from which they can develop effective, evidence-based approaches that have been proven to support young adults to desist from crime. Being mindful of diminishing local resources Clinks designed a “bronze, silver and gold approach” that offers practical ways services can be developed with very little resource, or when possible, with enough resources to commission a bespoke service.
