Preventing children and young people from formally entering the Youth Justice System is central to Lincolnshire's approach to tackling youth crime; with a strong emphasis on understanding the underlying causes of behaviour in order to achieve long term positive outcomes.

Lincolnshire Police and Lincolnshire Children Services have an overarching belief in utilising restorative principles within the Joint Diversionary Panel to underpin this aim. The panel in partnership seeks to ensure that children and young people are offered quality assessment and timely intervention and support to meet their individual needs. The duty to victims is embedded within the panel and seeks to ensure that it provides support to victims and create positive opportunities for restorative justice.

Campaign details

LSCP and LSAB Christmas and New Year Online Safety Campaign 2021

The campaign will start on the Monday 20th December 2021 and run until Sunday 2nd January 2022.

Each year the LSCP runs an additional online safety campaign over the Christmas and New Year period. This year we are working in collaboration with the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board to also raise awareness of online safety for adults in our local community.

Private Fostering Awareness Campaign 2021

The campaign will run from the 17 to 23 July 2021.

Private Fostering Awareness is an important campaign, in that many people are unaware exactly what private fostering means. It is estimated that 10,000 children in England are privately fostered; however, many of these are unreported. The LSCP has chosen to undertake a private fostering awareness campaign as we understand the importance of raising awareness of what private fostering is and the resources that are available in Lincolnshire.

LSCP self harm awareness campaign

The campaign will start on Wednesday 12 May and run until Wednesday 19 May 2021.

Self-harm can sometimes be misunderstood by adults working with or supporting children and young people. Unfortunately it can be viewed by some as "attention seeking behaviour" or that it is automatically indicative of an underlying mental health condition. This campaign seeks to assist all stakeholders to promote and/or access appropriate services. It also seeks to assist all stakeholders to recognise that self-harm is a behaviour.
