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 Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme) is a government funded scheme which is designed to compensate victims of violent crime in Great Britain. The rules of the Scheme and the tariff for awards paid under it are approved by Parliament. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) administers the Scheme and decides all claims independently of Ministers and Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>The CICA identified (a) 10 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 11 claims where an underpayment was made in 2015-16. All underpayments were rectified with the exception of one claim (amounting to an £80 underpayment) where the applicant could not be traced. The CICA identified (a) 5 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 3 claims where an underpayment was made in 2016-17. We will also seek to rectify all underpayments for the financial year 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p>There is no minimum time period that must pass after the incident giving rise to the criminal injury before a claim can be made to the CICA. The Scheme requirements are that applicants send their claim so that it is received as soon as reasonably practicable after the incident and in any event no later than two years after the date of that incident.</p><p> </p><p>Additional provision exists for applicants who were aged under 18 at the time of the incident:</p><ul><li>If the incident was reported to the police before an applicant turned 18, and no-one made a claim on their behalf, they can apply to the CICA until the day of their 20th birthday.</li><li>If the incident took place before the applicant turned 18, but was not reported to the police at the time, they can apply to the CICA within two years from reporting the incident to the police.</li></ul><p>The CICA can only extend these time limits where due to exceptional circumstances an application could not have been made earlier; and the evidence provided in support of the application means that it can be determined without further extensive enquiries by a claims officer.</p><p>We advise applicants not to wait until the conclusion of criminal proceedings before applying for compensation.</p><p>The CICA recruited a total of 108 staff during the financial year 2016-2017. The number of full time equivalent staff employed in CICA as at 31 March 2017 was 293.5. This is an increase from 255 as at 31 March 2016.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (the Scheme) is a government funded scheme which is designed to compensate victims of violent crime in Great Britain. The rules of the Scheme and the tariff for awards paid under it are approved by Parliament. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) administers the Scheme and decides all claims independently of Ministers and Parliament.</p><p> </p><p>The CICA identified (a) 10 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 11 claims where an underpayment was made in 2015-16. All underpayments were rectified with the exception of one claim (amounting to an £80 underpayment) where the applicant could not be traced. The CICA identified (a) 5 claims where an overpayment was made and (b) 3 claims where an underpayment was made in 2016-17. We will also seek to rectify all underpayments for the financial year 2016/17.</p><p> </p><p>There is no minimum time period that must pass after the incident giving rise to the criminal injury before a claim can be made to the CICA. The Scheme requirements are that applicants send their claim so that it is received as soon as reasonably practicable after the incident and in any event no later than two years after the date of that incident.</p><p> </p><p>Additional provision exists for applicants who were aged under 18 at the time of the incident:</p><ul><li>If the incident was reported to the police before an applicant turned 18, and no-one made a claim on their behalf, they can apply to the CICA until the day of their 20th birthday.</li><li>If the incident took place before the applicant turned 18, but was not reported to the police at the time, they can apply to the CICA within two years from reporting the incident to the police.</li></ul><p>The CICA can only extend these time limits where due to exceptional circumstances an application could not have been made earlier; and the evidence provided in support of the application means that it can be determined without further extensive enquiries by a claims officer.</p><p>We advise applicants not to wait until the conclusion of criminal proceedings before applying for compensation.</p><p>The CICA recruited a total of 108 staff during the financial year 2016-2017. The number of full time equivalent staff employed in CICA as at 31 March 2017 was 293.5. This is an increase from 255 as at 31 March 2016.</p>
