star this property answer text <p>All establishments holding young offenders (either “young adults”, who are aged 18-21, or “young people”, who are aged 15 to 17) are designated as young offender institutions. In 2017 there were three self-inflicted deaths of young adults, and no self-inflicted deaths of young people.</p><p> </p><p>There are no ‘juvenile wings of prisons’, as any site with a population that includes both adults and young people is designated as both a prison and a young offender institution. The only such establishment in the estate at this time is HMP/YOI Parc, where there were no self-inflicted deaths of young people (or of adults) in 2017.</p><p> </p><p>The safety and welfare of every young person in custody is our priority. That is why we are already investing in more front-line staff and building on our reforms to youth custody. We are expanding front-line staff capacity in public-sector YOIs by 20%, equating to over 120 new recruits. Since the creation of our youth justice reform programme last year, inspection reports have highlighted improvements in all the under-18 sites they have inspected, and we continue to drive forward these vital reforms so that we have safer, more rehabilitative young offender institutions.</p>
