Earlier this year, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) commissioned Deloitte to conduct a stocktake of youth offending teams (YOTs), to understand how the YOT model has evolved locally and nationally, including differences in organisational structures, funding arrangements, spending decisions, and ways of working.

The report sets out the findings of the stocktake and the recommendations made by Deloitte. The MOJ is currently considering the recommendations.
