Children in Need of Therapeutic Treatment

Therapeutic Treatment Orders

At present, the Criminal Division of the Children’s Court may direct treatment as part of sentencing, where a young person is convicted of a sexual offence.

The new provisions within the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (CYFA) that relate to children in need of therapeutic treatment will provide an alternative pathway into treatment when the child does not voluntarily seek help, without the need to rely on a criminal prosecution.
