What we do
 Reduce the use of custody and encourage better use
of prevention activities and robust alternatives to
custody that may provide better outcomes for young
people.
 The key aims are to:
 Reduce the use of youth custody, in order to contribute to savings
across the youth secure estate.
 Improve outcomes for young people who offend.
 Strengthen the local authority’s accountability for young people in
custody and the contributions that the authority makes to preventing
offending and reducing reoffending.

vulnerability factors of a young person who may
come into contact with the Criminal Justice System.
What we offer

can provide the right kind of help that a young

avoid future harm, by tackling problems that may
lead young people to encounter difficulties with the
law.
