star this property answer text <p>We are committed to improving standards within the Youth Justice System so that we can not only punish crime effectively but also intervene earlier to help divert young people away from crime. That is why we set out our plans to reform the Youth Justice System in response to Charlie Taylor’s review last December, so that it is better equipped to help young people turn their lives around and play a constructive role in their communities.</p><p> </p><p>The safety and welfare of every young person in custody is our absolute priority and we are clear that more needs to be done to achieve this. We want custody to improve the life chances of children and young people in our care and to deliver improvements to education and health services within youth custody. That’s why we have created a new Youth Custody Service, with an Executive Director for the first time in the Department’s history – to make sure this vital area is given the priority and weight it deserves.</p><p> </p><p>We will continue to engage with key stakeholders and consider their recommendations as this work progresses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is determined to improve safety and reduce the risk of serious incidents, violence and self-harm in youth custody. We acknowledge that levels of violence within the youth estate are too high and outcomes for children and young people in custody are not good enough. Following the Government’s response to Charlie Taylor’s review of the youth justice system, a new Youth Custody Service (YCS) has been created to focus on performance in the Youth Secure Estate and a Youth Justice Reform Programme has been established.</p><p>The aims of the programme are to improve standards by making youth custody a place of safety, both for young people and those who work there; and to improve the life chances of young people in custody. We are investing £64 million to entrench the reform of youth custody. We will boost the number of frontline staff in youth offender institutions by 20% – 120 additional recruits, including newly trained specialist youth justice workers, equipped to tackle the needs of young offenders. We are also developing two new Secure Schools.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Carrying on the youth justice reforms from 2017, we are providing funding for every Prison Officer in the Youth Custody Service to undertake a youth justice qualification and, on completion, transition into a new youth justice specialist role on promotion and at a higher pay-grade. Over 400 frontline staff are currently enrolled on this qualification.</p><p> </p><p>To better support young people in custody, we are rolling out the Custody Support Plan (CuSP) and implementing the use of Promoting Risk Intervention by Situational Management (PRISM). CuSP will provide each young person with a personal officer to work with in order to build trust and consistency. PRISM is an evidence-based process specifically designed and tested for use within custodial institutions. It provides a comprehensive framework for reviewing features of an environment that are known to contribute to the likelihood and emergence of violence.</p><p> </p><p>As well as this we are working closely with the NHS on ‘Secure Stairs’, which is a new integrated approach to strengthen the provision of health care to address the needs of young people holistically and co-ordinates services through a coherent, joined up approach. In addition, we are increasing psychology staff and support, and opening Enhanced Support Units for young people with the most complex needs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The principal aim of the youth justice system is to prevent offending by children and young people. Since the peak in youth proven offending in 2006/07, the average number of under-18s in youth custody has decreased by 70% from 2,915 to 869 in 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p>The sentencing framework for young people provides for robust alternatives to custody in the form of community-based sentences: referral orders and youth rehabilitation orders (including youth rehabilitation orders with intensive supervision and surveillance). Custody should always be a measure of last resort and be the shortest term commensurate with the seriousness of the offence. The main custodial sentence for children and young people, the Detention and Training Order, is not available for children under 12 years old and any case that warrants one of less than four months must result in a non‑custodial sentence.</p> more like this
