Young people leaving the justice system unprepared for outside world
Children and young people are suffering as a result of variable standards of support when moving into and out of custody, according to a report published today by Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills
While their achievements in custody provide the first experience of educational success for many young people, the report Transition through detention and custody highlights how poor initial assessment of learning needs and insufficient preparation for independent living leaves children and young people ill-equipped for outside life.
