star this property answer text <p>Table A attached sets out the total funding the Youth Justice Board (YJB) has given to local authorities in each year from 2009/10 to 2017/18 as published in the 2017/18 annual youth justice statistics (published totals for 2018/19 are not yet available). Table B breaks this down by local authority. The majority of this funding helps support the day-to-day business of Youth Offending Teams (YOTs), but it also includes some discrete additional grants for specific projects or initiatives, for example funding for restorative justice. The annual recorded value of the additional grants is set out in Table C.</p><p> </p><p>Due to a change in reporting processes the additional grants given in 2014/15 and 2015/16 were not included in the published totals in the 2017/18 youth justice statistics. The totals for these years therefore differ between Table A (where the additional grants are not included) and Table B (where they are included).</p> more like this

The 2012 Scheme provides that a person is eligible for an award only in relation to a criminal injury sustained on or after 1 August 1964.

Therefore, having or not having ‘formal written procedures’ does not in itself dictate the quality of care for LAC.</p><p> </p><p>Children detained under criminal justice legislation in secure establishments are subject to the Children Act 1989. The responsible authority continues to have responsibilities towards them in the same way as they would to other children in need – recognising that the court, by sentencing the child, has determined where he/she will live. The duties and expectations placed on all local authorities in relation to effectively caring for looked-after children and care leavers, including where they are detained in the secure estate, are set out in the relevant legislation and accompanying statutory guidance.</p>

The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p><p>In the female offender strategy, published June 2018, we set out our vision to see fewer women coming into the criminal justice system, and a greater proportion managed successfully in the community.</p>
