The majority (51%) of young people in youth offending institutions are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
Reoffending, school exclusion, stop and search and unemployment rates are significantly higher for black young people. BAME service providers should play a greater role in supporting BAME young offenders and reducing reoffending both in custody and the community.
How do we ensure interventions and commissioning are responsive to the needs of BAME young offenders?
How is HMPPS Youth Custody Service meeting the needs of BAME young people?
This free seminar will focus on practical solutions and overcoming the barriers to change.
