London Justice Centre
The Justice Centre is a program designed to assist young adults (18-24) charged with criminal offences with obtaining supports/addressing the behaviour underlying the offences.
A case management plan is developed to specifically target the unique circumstances of each young adult, and provide any needed supports related to employment, housing, education, physical and mental health.
Eligible participants are screened by the Justice Centre Crown and are allowed to speak with a dedicated Justice Centre Duty Counsel lawyer before agreeing to participate in the program.
It is the hope that participants will be connected with community supports that will ultimately address underlying issues that may be directly or indirectly linked to their involvement in the Justice system. The plan made in the Justice Centre is not just limited to finding supports, but also playing to the strengths of the participants.
