star this property answer text <p>As stated in the previous answer information is collected locally on a young person’s entry into custody, and may be updated over the course of their custodial episode. This information helps to inform staff in relation to the children in their immediate care.</p><p>As part of their assessment Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) record a child’s accommodation status and seek to address any issues relating to this. The Youth Justice Board is currently undertaking work to improve its own data collection and a child’s accommodation status will be included in this. The Ministry of Justice, however, does not hold a national coordinating role in this regard, so there is currently no essential business reason to collate this centrally. It is the general duty of every local authority to safeguard and promote the welfare of children within their area who are in need by providing a range and level of services, including accommodation, appropriate to those children’s needs.</p><p>We believe that everyone should have a safe and suitable home to live; having somewhere to live gives people a stable platform from which to access health services, hold down a job and reduces the likelihood of them reoffending. In keeping with this the Government published its Rough Sleeping Strategy in August 2018, launching a £100 million initiative to reduce and ultimately eliminate rough sleeping across England.</p>

This is a two-day programme and is due to be rolled out shortly across the estate. One of the modules specifically refers to mental health in the female estate, with an aim to ensure delegates gain an overview of the mental health needs of female offenders and how this impacts on offending – including understanding the main disorders found in women in prison; the challenges caused by psychosis and schizophrenia; and explores the personality disorder pathway and personality disorder services.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>For possession or threatening with an offensive weapon or possession of an article with a blade or point offences, offenders are now more likely to receive an immediate custodial sentence for a knife and offensive weapon offence and to go to prison for longer than at any point over the past 10 years. In the year ending March 2019 over a third (37%) of offences resulted in immediate custody, compared to 22% in the year ending March 2009. The average length of immediate custodial sentences has increased from 5.5 months in the year ending March 2009 to 8.1 months in the year ending March 2019. This is the highest since the series began.</p><p>There are a range of offences available to prosecute knife crime and Parliament has set penalties that are proportionate to the nature of these serious offences.</p><p> </p><p>Unlawful possession of a knife or offensive weapon in public is a serious criminal offence with a maximum penalty of four years’ imprisonment. Since 2015, adults convicted of threatening with a knife in public, or for second or subsequent knife possession face a minimum sentence of 6 months’ imprisonment and young people aged 16 or 17 face a minimum sentence of a 4 month Detention and Training Order. Courts can only depart from minimum sentencing if the court considers would be unjust in all the circumstances to impose these terms.</p><p> </p><p>Where someone is physically injured by a knife or offensive weapon there are a range of other offences, such as causing grievous bodily harm, that the person may be charged with. These can result in lengthy determinate sentences or life imprisonment. In England and Wales, all murder convictions for adults must result in a life sentence, and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 sets out a starting point of a minimum term in prison of 25 years for offenders aged 18 and over who bring a knife or another weapon to the scene of a murder with the intention of using it.</p><p> </p><p>It is already the case that for offences where the possession or use of a knife or offensive weapon is not inherent to the offence or charged separately, possession will be treated as an aggravating factor, which increases the seriousness of the offence. This is outlined in several sentencing guidelines produced by the independent Sentencing Council.</p>
