The YJB response to the HMIP Inspectorate report into Ashfield YOI

Tuesday, 4 June 2013

Ray Hill, Deputy Chief Executive, Secure Accommodation, said:

“We thank HMIP for their report. The Youth Justice Board has a clear transfer plan for the young people at Ashfield, which ensures that the needs of young people have been considered and safeguarded. 

“However, we accept that at the time of this inspection there would have been a degree of uncertainty surrounding transfer given that the YJB was at the very early stages of implementing this plan.
“Over the past few months we have taken great care to ensure  individual plans  are in place with extensive consultations with the young people, their families and the Youth Offending Teams (YOTs).
"From the end of May, there are no longer any young people now left at Ashfield YOI."
