star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to reducing reoffending amongst all offenders. We are working to tackle the causes of reoffending through our wider prison reform agenda, the female offender strategy and the education and employment strategy.</p><p>We recognise that young adults are a cohort who may have distinct needs relating to their maturity, alongside other issues they may have in common with the adult offender population. We are committed to developing approaches within the adult system that respond to their particular needs and reduce reoffending.</p><p>The MoJ has appointed a dedicated expert (on secondment from the voluntary sector) to identify best practice across the custodial estate in relation to young adults. This work will scope out areas of specialised practice or approaches that meet the needs of young adults in prisons particularly well.</p><p>The MoJ innovation board has also grant funded The Disabilities Trust to deliver the awareness training and Brain Injury Linkworker service to the two pilot sites in Wales and the four sites in England. The Brain Injury Linkworker service is being qualitatively evaluated, due to report in the autumn.</p><p>We have made a maturity screening tool available to prisons and probation areas via the Segmentation Tool, which enables examination of maturity on a population level. Those who are screened as having low levels of psychosocial maturity and who are considered for the maturity resource pack will take part in a further, collaborative, assessment of their needs, through which they will agree their maturity-related treatment goals.</p><p>For further information, please see <em>Young Adults in the criminal justice system: Government Response to the Committee’s Eighth Report of Session 2017-19</em> at <a href="https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmselect/cmjust/1530/153002.htm" target="_blank">https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmselect/cmjust/1530/153002.htm</a></p>
