Youth Rehabilitation Programmes

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what his Department’s budget is for rehabilitation programmes for youth offenders in 2006-07. (84889)

In 2006-07 the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales (YJB) will receive a total of £96 million from the Home Office to be directed towards rehabilitation programmes. This sum comprises £34 million for intensive supervision and surveillance programmes (ISSP) and intensive fostering, £19.5 million for substance misuse programmes, £8.5 million for community education programmes and approximately £34 million for education programmes across the whole of the custodial estate.

Youth offending teams (YOTs) are primarily funded locally by their statutory partners as well as by the YJB and a proportion of that local funding will also be directed to rehabilitation programmes.
