Essentially the John Howard Society and its restorative justice agency initially had a broad set of objectives for the project wherein the YCLW would play both a liaison role to the CJS for youth and an outreach role vis-à-vis the accused youths and their families. Government specification centered strongly on the liaison role -getting the youth engaged more quickly in the court process via legal aid, to their own and to the justice system’s benefit. The governmental emphasis reflected clearly that the project was largely a response to the recommendations of the Nunn Inquiry concerning processing youth cases.
