Crossroads Adult Diversion Scheme
The Crossroads Diversion Scheme offers a trauma-informed scheme intended to address underlying causes of offending, by offering support to individuals that are at risk of entering the criminal justice system and first-time entrants.
We're here to help
We’re a community-based support scheme working with people aged 18+, who may be at risk of entering the Criminal Justice System or who are known to North Yorkshire Police.
Crossroads is a prevention and early intervention scheme open to those who are not yet offending or are only committing very low level offences. Engagement with the Crossroads Scheme is on a voluntary basis. Referrals are welcome from a variety of agencies.
Each individual receives a tailored support package, the intensiveness of which will be responsive to their needs. Each individual will be allocated a key worker who will provide direct interventions, advocate and signpost into specialist agencies where necessary.
