Certified institution

Certified institutions are institutions that carry out youth protection and probation measures. These institutions must be in the possession of a certificate. To obtain one, they must meet certain standards aimed at safeguarding the quality of the execution of youth protection and probation.
In practice, these are the former 'Bureaus Jeugdzorg' and a number of specialised institutions that operate nationwide, such as William Schrikker Groep and Leger des Heils
