Youth Diversion Pilot Program (YDPP) Evaluation for the Children's Court of Victoria, funded by Court Services Victoria, March-Dec ember 2016. This project sets out to evaluate the pilot version of the youth diversion program to be rolled out across Victoria in 2017. It found broad support for court-based diversion of children and young people, yet some different interpretations and processes across pilot sites. These reflect variation between magistrates and practice cultures in Children's Courts across Victoria.
