AWAY - Alternative Ways to Address Youth Objectives


This project aims to address the challenges and gaps in terms of services and opportunities in diversion. In particular it aims to:

  •  Build regional empirical evidence base on diversion in the juvenile justice systems;
  •  Build upon research, develop and deliver a self-directed e-learning course, as well as one-to-one and group mentoring programmes with multidisciplinary professionals around child-friendly practices in the area of diversion;
  •  Utilise the research findings and recommendations generated by the training to develop child-friendly and popularized informational materials for children and adults in the target countries;
  •  Inform both local and regional related policies and plans of action.

To achieve these objectives, all proposed strategies will include child participatory approaches throughout the design, planning and implementation stages.
