Youth Justice Teams are concerned with addressing young people’s offending behaviour ensuring their safety and wellbeing, as well as protecting the public and wider community. With shrinking budgets and growing caseloads youth justice teams find it increasingly difficult to carry out their work, whilst ensuring all case management recording is completed correctly.
Managers need to be able to monitor caseloads and identify potential issues quickly. Service Heads, MI managers and Performance analysis teams are being asked to provide more and more performance and evaluation information to satisfy management boards, support funding bids and generate accurate reports on both local and national initiatives.
