Last November, the Youth Justice Board (YJB) launched its participation strategy during the Youth Justice Convention. The participation strategy is the YJB’s commitment to putting the voices of children and young people at the heart of its work. The Beyond Youth Custody (BYC) programme has focused research into this area and published a practitioner’s guide on developing participatory approaches in resettlement services, considering the implications for work with young people leaving custody.
Last week the YJB, together with the Beyond Youth Custody (BYC) programme, wrote to all youth offending teams (YOTs) to call for examples of effective practice around participation. The YJB intends to feature the best examples on the Youth Justice Resource Hub.
