YJB response to HMI Probation report on transition arrangements

This follow-up inspection report looks at how young people who have offended are supported when they move to the adult justice system.

Youth Justice Board for England and Wales

Lin Hinnigan, Chief Executive of the Youth Justice Board, said:

The YJB recognised that work was needed to ensure young people are fully supported as they move from the youth to adult justice system. In December 2015 we published a joint national protocol for transitions in England setting out minimum expectations for justice services, to further support improvements to how cases are transferred between youth and adult justice services. We will continue to support local service delivery and to monitor practice in this area.
