About Youth Justice NSW

Youth Justice NSW is a division of the Department of Communities and Justice within the Stronger Communities NSW cluster. Formerly known as Juvenile Justice, Youth Justice NSW supervises and provides custodial and community-based services for young offenders under the Children (Detention Centres) Act, 1987 . There are six Youth Justice centres across NSW which accommodate young offenders and offer health, educational and spiritual services – including individual case management, specialised counselling, and training in job and living skills. There are also 34 Youth Justice community offices that provide community-based intervention for young people who are at risk of reoffending. Youth Justice NSW aims to work with young people to reduce their reoffending, rehabilitate and return them to society.

About Reiby Youth Justice Centre

Reiby Youth Justice Centre is located at Airds near Campbelltown, with a capacity for 55 young people. The centre was opened in August 1973, accommodating females aged 10 to 21 and males under the age of 15 years, who are on control orders or on remand. The centre also specialises in managing young male offenders with extreme behavioural problems with a unit specifically designated to address the special needs of this group. The Waratah Unit, also at Reiby Youth Justice Centre, was opened in late 2010, and is a pre-release unit aimed at preparing young people for return into the community. The unit caters for 10 young people from across NSW.
