    Abstract

    In 2009, in response to the Youth Crime Action Plan1 , the YJB commenced working with stakeholders to develop two regionally led consortia pilots: one in the North West and one in the South West of England. The overarching aims of the consortia were to develop positive links between the secure estate, youth offending teams (YOTs) and local authorities in order to improve resettlement outcomes for young people released from custody. Children’s services and housing were identified as key local authority departments to engage with, and improving the provision of, and access to both mainstream and specialist services was a prime aim. Funded for two years, the resettlement consortia were envisaged as being critical to the delivery of the YJB target to reduce reoffending by children and young people2 . For the North West, the project was designed to target young people from Manchester, Rochdale, Wigan or Stockport local authority areas sentenced to a Detention and Training Order (DTO) at HMYOI Hindley.
