The report reflects the activities of the Monitoring Committee and the Diversion Programme during 2012 and sets out recommended actions for 2013.

The number of referrals to the Diversion Programme during 2012 was 24,069 and the number of individual children referred was 12,246. Of those referred 9,776 (80%) were admitted to the Programme.

During 2012, the Programme administered 1,036 cautions by way of Restorative Justice. This is indicative of the increased use of Restorative Justice and Restorative Practices when interacting with children who come in conflict with the law. In 2013 we will continue to progress the use of Restorative Justice as part of the Diversion Programme.
