Inspection into North Yorkshire's Youth Offending team.
6:11am 26th January 2011
The latest inspection report of Youth Offending work in England and Wales was published today.
Liz Calderbank, Assistant Chief Inspector, said:
"This Core Case Inspection of youth offending work in North Yorkshire took place as part of the Inspection of Youth Offending programme. We have examined a representative sample of youth offending cases from the area, and have judged how often the Public Protection and the Safeguarding aspects of the work were done to a sufficiently high level of quality.
"We judged that the Safeguarding aspects of the work were done well enough 80% of the time. With the Public Protection aspects, work to keep to a minimum each individual's Risk of Harm to others was done well enough 75% of the time, and the work to make each individual less likely to reoffend was done well enough 77% of the time.
"These figures can be viewed in the context of our findings from Wales and the regions of England inspected so far.
"Overall, we consider this a very creditable set of findings."
