Developing a gender-sensitive approach to resettlement: policy briefing

9 February 2015 | Tagged with the theme:

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 Рbringing together stakeholders, policy makers and practitioners, including Baroness Jean Corston and Nick Hardwick CBE Рwas convened. Discussions and recommendations for policy and practice have been summarised into this short briefing document.
