Thematic review, commissioned by the Youth Justice Board, which examines accommodation and education, training and employment (ETE) resettlement provision for sentenced young men aged 15 to 18 in young offender institutions.
It reports on the work carried out in custody to prepare young people for release, using survey data as well as indepth interviews with 61 sentenced young men, their case supervisors and follow-up information on what happened to them on release.
This report summarises the findings of a project concerning children under the age of 18 who are in breach of their anti-social behaviour or criminal justice order. The aim of the project was to increase understanding of the way statutory orders are enforced and to make recommendations for change.
ISMS was launched in Glasgow, and six other Phase One sites, in April 2005, in order to provide a direct community-based alternative to secure care.
The purpose of this report is twofold. Firstly it comprises a short examination of the service, covering the period from 1st April 2007 to 31st March 2009 (following on from where the previous evaluation left off).
Glasgow City Council and its partners are keen to ensure that the city becomes and remains a positive place to live, a place where young people are safe, nurtured, healthy, achieving, active, respected & responsible and included.
This document details a youth justice strategy for the city in 2010-11.
Annual report on crime and the impact of youth justice services in Glasgow for the period of 2009/10.
The Conservative-Liberal Democrat Government Coalition Agreement of 10th May 2010 included a commitment to “end the detention of children for immigration purposes”. On 25th May it was announced that a review of existing practice in the UK and elsewhere would be undertaken in order to identify how this commitment would be achieved. The terms of reference for the review were published on the UK Border Agency (UKBA) website on 11th June and debated in the House of Commons on 17th June.
The safety and security of the law-abiding citizen is a key priority of the coalition government. Everyone has a right to feel safe in their home and in their community. When that safety is threatened, those responsible should face a swift and effective response. People rely on the criminal justice system to deliver that response: punishing offenders, protecting the public, and reducing reoffending.
This review assesses the Youth Courts’ impact on reoffending rates, with regard to the impact on the Youth Courts of the recent reforms of summary justice. The current administration announced in January 2008 that a decision would be made about any further Youth Courts in the light of this review.
