‘Inspiring Futures’- Longitudinal Research on the social impact of custody on young people

Research output: Contribution to ConferenceAbstract

Abstract

Attention on young people involved in the Criminal Justice System in the United Kingdom is often categorised by ‘respectable fears’, which Pearson (1983) described as the growing anxiety with regards to rebellious and threatening young people (Pearson, 1983). These ‘respectable fears’ have contributed to the expansion of the youth justice system and resulted in developments to mainstream youth justice services. One such youth justice service is Secure Training Centres which were designed to accommodate young people on remand or sentenced for crimes and offences. This presentation outlines findings from a wider research project exploring how social impact measurement as a form of organisational performance management can enhance the outcomes for young people. It explores young people’s views on the services and interventions offered at the Secure Training Centre and outlines the development of the resettlement pyramid.
