CYS Continuum of Care Consultation

In 2012 the Minister for Children requested that the Department of Health and Human Services initiate the Continuum of Care project; the Minister also requested a supplementary project be completed by the Commissioner for Children in conjunction with this project, titled „Alternatives to Secure Detention for Youth in Tasmania‟. It is envisaged that this supplementary project will be used to compliment and inform some of the recommendations in the Continuum project.

The Continuum of Care to Prevent Youth Offending and Re Offending (the Continuum) project will provide Government with recommendations that will assist in the development of short, medium and long term strategies which will strengthen the primary, secondary and tertiary intervention options that exist across the entire Continuum.

The ATDC provided a submission to the consultation which can be downloaded below.
