Youth on Track is an early intervention scheme for 10–17 year-olds that identifies and responds to young people at risk of long-term involvement in the criminal justice system. Youth on Track provides the NSW Police, Education, Youth Justice NSW, Justice Health and Forensic Mental Health, solicitors, Communtiy Services, Out of Home Care Providers, Community Health, Family Referral Service, Headspace and other mental health services with an opportunity to refer young people, known to be at medium to high risk of offending, to a support service without requiring a legal mandate. The young person's engagement in Youth on Track is voluntary.
Youth on Track has the benefit of multi-agency support. It aims to work collaboratively with other service providers to ensure consistent service provision without duplication of service.
