Prevention as a partnership responsibility

It is not about waiting for a child to offend… it is all about early identification and early help… with the Youth Offending Team playing a critical role in all aspects of this.. in partnership with other agencies and services.
We are extremely grateful to colleagues from St Helens and Camden who described their provision, partnership systems and processes.
Camden featured an interconnected partnership provision within an Integrated Youth Support Service: the power of networking and intelligent systemic design. (Please find the PowerPoint slides here)

St Helens highlighted a prevention offer supported by a dedicated Education Re-engagement Mentor, working with children, schools and families, a weekly health panel, and a training offer to local providers (such as Care Homes). (Please find the PowerPoint slides here)

Removing the systemic barriers: How Assistive Technologies can transform communication outcomes for young people and adults in justice pathways

Following on from the “visioning” webinar in June earlier this year with Sharon Gray, Marius Frank describes how recent advances in Assistive Technologies are rewriting the rulebook when it comes to supporting young people with communication issues.

Marius makes a case for using AT in youth justice pathways, and shares the learning from two recent DfE-funded projects involving over 200 schools in England. Opportunities for Youth Offending Service staff to access training alongside staff from PRUs and Alternative Provision in their areas are also presented.
