It was explained that there was a statutory requirement for localities to bring forward an annual Youth Justice Plan for their area.  As part of the national response to Covid, the Youth Justice Board (YJB) had relaxed this requirement for 2020/21.  In its place the YJB had required each Youth Offending Service to complete a Recovery Plan, setting out how localities will transition from a response to recovery at the point health risks are declared negligible. 

The Gloucestershire Youth Justice Service Recovery Plan provided an overview of how the service had responded to Covid, including any lessons learned and how those may be incorporated within future provision.  He outlined that there had been extensive collaborative working with all the statutory agencies as well as non-statutory bodies.

As the Youth Justice Plan formed part of the Council’s policy framework, it was required to be approved by Council, following its consideration by Cabinet. 

Having considered all of the information, Cabinet noted the report and,

 

RESOLVED to: -

Recommend that County Council approve Gloucestershire’s Youth Offending Service Recovery Plan attached at Appendix 1 of the report.
