ABSTRACT
A key theme of the New Labour Government since 1997 has been to tackle youth crime. As a result a considerable number of new interventions have been introduced both at pre-court stage and as court sentences.

This paper describes the various interventions available, discusses the overlap amongst them and explores young people's views of specific interventions at the pre-court and sentence stage.
