The Youth Justice Board responds to HMI Probation's Full Joint Inspection of youth offending work in Newcastle

YJB

Colin Allars, YJB CEO, said:

“The Inspection finds that staff at Newcastle YOT are committed to supporting the children and young people in their care but that more needs to be done to reduce reoffending and improve the effectiveness of governance and partnership arrangements.

“YJB will continue to support the YOT and to challenge the robustness of its leadership to tackle the issues which will ensure interventions are more effective in addressing the poor reoffending performance.”
