Approriate adult service provided for children who get arrested

The role of the appropriate adult is to safeguard the interests, rights, entitlements and welfare of children and vulnerable people who are suspected of a criminal offence, by ensuring that they are treated in a fair and just manner and are able to participate effectively. This is a service that we provide and an appropriate adult will be called on to support the child/young person in police detention if a parent or other suitable adult is not available to attend.

Liaison and diversion

Young people who are arrested and identified as requiring additional support are assessed by the liaison worker and can be supported into accessing the appropriate community resources away from the criminal justice system. They offer confidential, accessible, and early help to young people who have been arrested in custody or the community or spoken to by the police, because they are a suspect of a crime.
