The Rt Hon Lord McNally, Chairman of the YJB said:
“I welcome the publication of Charlie Taylor’s report and the Government’s response. Taken together, they offer a clear road-map for developing the future of youth justice services. Both documents seek to build on the success of the Youth Justice Board and its Youth Offending Teams over the last sixteen years.
I also welcome the Government’s expressed desire to continue to use the experience and expertise within the YJB and YOTs to carry the strategy forward.”
