To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what rehabilitation and treatment facilities are available upon leaving residential facilities to young offenders convicted of sexual offences.[118154]

Work with young people under 18 convicted of sexual offences who are leaving custodial establishments is carried out by a range of services including the NHS, social services, probation and charitable and community organisations. Youth Offending Teams draw up individual training and supervision plans in consultation with these services. Depending on the individual's circumstances these provide for risk management, supervision, mental health treatment, family support and work with victims. They draw on the services of 75 projects across England and Wales providing services for young sexual abusers.
