As part of wider government action on deficit reduction, the Secretary of State for Justice, Michael Gove, has required the YJB to make £12m (5%) savings from its 2015/16 budget.
The £12m required is in addition to a deficit the YJB already has in its 2015/16 budget as a result of earlier cuts. Efficiency measures already taken have reduced this deficit to £1.5m – meaning that it now needs to find a total saving of £13.5m in-year.
The YJB is proposing to make the savings through a range of measures it has identified which total £4.5m. It is then proposing that the remaining £9m of savings are made by reducing the Youth Justice Grant to youth offending teams (YOTs).
