Event Details

 

We have decided to cancel the seminar on the 28th September given that the final Taylor review report into Youth Justice has not yet been published.

 

Youth Justice – what next? Join the debate

The government review of Youth Justice led by Charlie Taylor is due to report this summer.

It is anticipated that it will recommend radical changes to the way in which youth justice is governed and delivered.  This is against a backdrop of shrinking local provision and further budget cuts.  While over the last seven years, young people in custody has fallen by two thirds from 3,000 to less than 1,000.  There are challenging times ahead.

Speaking shortly after the review was announced, the Children’s Commissioner for England urged: “Everyone in youth offending should get involved to let their experience and knowledge shape and influence the solution.”

This seminar is an opportunity to join the debate, led by our speakers:

  • Dr Tim Bateman – Principal Policy Advisor (Youth Justice) at the Children’s Commissioner England and Deputy Chair of the National Association of Youth Justice.
  • Professor Barry Goldson – Chair of CCCCC, University of Liverpool with a distinguished record of research into youth justice policy and practice.
  • Paul O’ Hara – the former Head of Bradford YOT and currently Head of Bradford Families First Programme bringing extensive youth justice practitioner experience.

At the Hallam Centre for Community Justice, Sheffield Hallam University, we are committed to promoting the use of research to inform effective policy and practice. The underlying principle of our Research into Practice conference and seminar series is to bring together policy makers, practitioners and researchers both as audience and as speakers.

We welcome you to join this FREE event on the  28th September 2016, commencing at 2pm and finishing at 5pm, at Sheffield Hallam University.

Places are limited so book early.
