Western Sydney Local Health District

The NSW Pre-Trial Diversion of Offenders Program (Cedar Cottage)

Following a decision by the NSW Government not to renew the Pre-Trial Diversion of Offenders Regulation 2005, the regulation lapsed. As a result, persons charged with relevant offences after 1 September 2012 were no longer eligible for diversion and the Program closed on Friday 19 September 2014.

Former Program Participants and their family members wishing to discuss any issues arising from their contact with the Program were encouraged to contact Cedar Cottage well before the closure date.

After 19 September 2014, all such enquiries will be responded to by Senior Clinicians from the New Street Adolescent Service, Sydney.  The New Street service is located within the same Local Health District that managed Cedar Cottage, and its staff are familiar with the work of Cedar Cottage.
