Developing a gender-sensitive approach to resettlement: policy briefing
9 February 2015 | Tagged with the theme: Young women and girls
With females comprising less than 5% of young people in custody, most knowledge about effective resettlement and reducing reoffending comes from work with young men. Beyond Youth Custody’s research identifies gender-sensitive lessons that can be applied to resettlement practice for girls and young women. In order to identify how lessons from the research can be embedded into policy and practice, a roundtable – bringing together stakeholders, policy makers and practitioners, including Baroness Jean Corston and Nick Hardwick CBE – was convened. Discussions and recommendations for policy and practice have been summarised into this short briefing document.
