The Taylor Review

In September 2015 the Ministry of Justice announced a review of the Youth Justice System to be led by Charlie Taylor. Please click here for the interim report.

The review was established to examine:

  • the nature and characteristics of offending by young people aged 10-17 and the arrangements in place to prevent it
  • how effectively the youth justice system and its partners operate in responding to offending by children and young people, preventing further offending, protecting the public and repairing harm to victims and communities, and rehabilitating young offenders
  • whether the leadership, governance, delivery structures and performance management of the youth justice system is effective in preventing offending and reoffending, and in achieving value for money.

CLINKS in partnership with the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services and a range of local partners held a series of consultation events/meetings with a range of voluntary sector organisations to discuss the above.  As part of the process, POPS in partnership with the Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) hosted a meeting in Manchester.

The findings of the consultations meetings can be found here.

The final report is expected in summer 2016.
