Target 120

Halls Creek 

Target 120 is designed to provide crucial support to families in Halls Creek. Developed as part of a 2017 McGowan Government initiative, Target 120 focuses on piloting early intervention strategies for at-risk young people aged 10 to 14 and their families, with the aim of reducing juvenile reoffending rates. 

Our primary goal is to decrease offending behaviors among young Western Australians. We achieve this by pooling resources from various agencies to offer voluntary support to young individuals at risk of becoming habitual offenders and their families. 

Our approach involves close collaboration between Community Youth Officers (CYOs) and Local Interagency Groups (LIGs). CYOs, in conjunction with LIGs, identify young individuals who could benefit from our 12-month program. Through the development of Individual Support Plans, we target and address criminogenic risk factors that may contribute to a young person's offending behavior. Additionally, our CYOs create Integrated Service Plans for families, outlining areas where local government agencies and relevant non-government organisations can offer support, prioritising the family's specific needs. 

By providing comprehensive support to both the young person and their family, Target 120 offers a holistic intervention approach, aiming to pave the way for a brighter future for all involved.
