Juvenile Justice Reform Project

The Ministry of Social Development is making progress with its ongoing thrust to develop a National Strategy for the Juvenile Justice Reform Project.

And, as part of this process, the Ministry convened a two-day consultation which wrapped up here yesterday.
The forum was facilitated by Consultant, Felicia Robinson who was contracted by the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

Speaking with NBC News at the conclusion of the sessions on Monday, Miss Robinson said the consultation involved key stakeholders such as Policy Advisers and Technocrats, to formulate an integrated national strategy on Juvenile Justice Reform.

She explained that the discussion was intended to ascertain what sort of interventions are needed here, in relation to Juvenile Justice.

The Juvenile Justice Reform Project targets young people in the Eastern Caribbean, who have had to go through the Justice System.

It is being implemented by the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, OECS, in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development USAID.
