Crest Insights, our think-tank for the whole of the criminal justice system, is inviting professionals, practitioners, and experts in youth justice to contribute evidence to a toolkit of best practice trauma-informed approaches as part of our research on trauma-informed practice in youth justice services.


How to take part


Please respond by following the links above and filling out the form with as much detail as possible. You can also email jessica.hull@crestadvisory.com to share any supporting documentation that you are unable to attach when completing the submission form, or if you have any questions. Your contributions are valuable to advancing our collective understanding and application of trauma-informed practice within youth justice.


Please note, we may reach out to contributors for further clarification or details. This would entail a short call or email to check the details of your service’s trauma-informed approaches.

Submission Guidelines


  • We welcome submissions detailing your experience, strategies, and insights related to trauma-informed practice within youth justice.

  • Submissions should focus on practical application, challenges, successes, and lessons learned in implementing trauma-informed approaches.

  • Please share any accompanying materials (evaluations, guidance) that are relevant to your submission. 

  • To ensure confidentiality, please anonymise sensitive information and do not include any  identifiable data.


Background


In recent years, there has been a notable shift towards trauma-informed practice within youth justice services. While this approach has gained momentum, the research and evaluation necessary to understand its application and effectiveness remains limited.


Crest Insights has undertaken research to build the body of evidence on trauma-informed practice in youth justice.  Our research, which will be published in May 2024, found there is a need for more evidence about, and tools to support, the application of trauma-informed practice in youth justice - to improve outcomes for young people who have offended and reduce reoffending. 


To begin to address this evidence gap, we are building a best practice toolkit for trauma-informed approaches in youth justice that will be accessible to anyone. 


But first, we need to hear from those on the front-line of youth justice.


We are therefore inviting professionals, practitioners, and experts in youth justice to contribute their insights. These contributions will inform the creation of the toolkit and enable those working in youth justice to access evidence on what works and learn from each other's experience.
