Title of project: 
Adverse Childhood Experiences and Violent Offending
Proposal summary: 

Our proposed project is primarily centred on the research topic of diversion away from the criminal justice system. Specifically, we will chart the developmental interplay between person-centred clusters of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and violent offending (assault and use of a weapon) during adolescence. In doing this we hope to identify which clusters of ACEs are most salient for subsequent violent offending. We will also investigate whether these differ for marginalised groups.

Impact of research: 
We hope the findings will be used to divert at-risk children away from violent offending. As part of the project proposal, we have included plans to engage with relevant policy makers.
