Diversion & Intervention Program
R&H Community Services Diversion & Intervention program provides a range of recreational and cognitive-based early intervention and diversion services for vulnerable young people. These services and programs provide Police and Government with alternative avenues for diverting young people from the justice system.
Our evidence-based, collaborative models build on the skills and experiences gained from our ongoing relationship with police, and provide the community services sector with a wide range of supports to engage some of the most isolated and disengaged young people in the community.
Outcomes include an increase in participants attending regular schooling, reductions in anti social behaviour, an increase in community engagement, a reduction in suspension rate of participants, and a reduction of participants entering or re-entering the youth justice system.
Program Outcomes Include

Young people are diverted from the formal youth justice system.
Young people are helped early and provided with supports and services they need.
