The Children, Youth and Community Tribunal (CYCT) makes decisions about children in need or in trouble.
The Tribunal allows for cases involving children and families to be heard in a supportive and non-adversarial environment.
The Tribunal is a legal forum and the decisions that it makes are legally binding.
Examples of the cases that the CYCT will hear are:
- children that aren’t attending school
- young people who have committed offences
- family situations where the authorities need to intervene
