star this property answer text <p>Privately-managed prisons have pioneered the use of modern technology to improve the running of establishments and help promote rehabilitation. This includes the development of in-cell telephony to help prisoners maintain ties with their families; interactive story-time activities between prisoners and their children; and the introduction of electronic kiosks, which allow prisoners to have greater control of managing their day-to-day lives. The use of body-worn video cameras was introduced by private prisons. Private prisons also have excellent facilities as standard, such as showers in cells, which it is not possible to provide in our older prisons.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

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

star this property answer text <p>In January 2017 we established a programme of reform to consider how we can deliver improvements across the youth justice system (YJS) and take account of the recommendations made by Charlie Taylor in his review of the YJS, published in December 2016.</p><p> </p><p>Since then we have established the Youth Custody Service to bring oversight of the whole youth secure estate under a single Executive Director directly accountable to me, and worked in partnership with DfE, DHSC and NHSE to develop the secure schools model. We hope to appoint the provider of the first secure school this summer. The Youth Justice Board has developed a new performance assessment process for Youth Offending Teams and we have increased the availability of liaison and diversion services across England.</p><p> </p><p>Work is also underway to review our criminal records processes and we have established a dedicated youth justice disproportionality team who are taking forward work to explain or address disproportionate representation and outcomes within the system. In addition, the HMCTS court reform programme has a specific workstream considering the needs of children and we are also undertaking a review of the use of remand for children.</p><p> </p><p>Work has therefore been completed, or is underway, in relation to every recommendation made in Charlie Taylor’s review and we will continue to use the review and the specific recommendations made to inform our work as we take our reform programme forward.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All children in the youth secure estate have their needs and risks identified, addressed and managed in line with the requirements set out in ‘Standards for children in the youth justice system’ (<a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/780504/Standards_for_children_in_youth_justice_services_2019.doc.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/780504/Standards_for_children_in_youth_justice_services_2019.doc.pdf</a>). These standards apply to all secure establishments providers, including health commissioners and providers. All youth secure establishments must also follow the relevant case management guidance relating to LAC. 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>

We have recruited over 4,700 more prison officers since October 2016, and we now have the greatest number in post since early 2012. The Challenge, Support and Intervention Plan case management process for prisoners at risk of violence has been mandated for all prisons to help staff to manage violent prisoners and those identified as posing a raised risk of being violent.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to reducing violence in prison and we encourage prisoners to report assaults, so that we can take action against perpetrators and support victims. The most important support that we can provide is to ensure that all allegations are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly, and that appropriate action is taken if they are proven. Other support can include: ensuring that there is no contact between alleged perpetrator and victim; increased supervision of the person who reported the assault, to build their sense of security and confidence; and referral to other forms of help such as peer supporters, health staff, and specialist external services.</p>
