Young Offenders: Counselling

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how much was spent on (a) routine assessment and (b) therapeutic interventions for young people with experiences of (i) abuse and neglect and (ii) witnessing domestic violence who were referred to youth offending teams by courts or police in the latest period for which figures are available. (139790)

The information requested is not available. Youth offending teams are a multi-agency partnership whose statutory partners include health, education and social services. Youth offending teams are therefore equipped to identify and respond to the needs of young people with whom they have contact, including where specific vulnerabilities have been identified through the assessment process.
