Youth Justice Service Needs Assessment published

This Health and Wellbeing Needs and Assets Assessment (HWBNAA) has been undertaken at the request of Warwickshire’s Youth Justice Chief Officers Board, who have responsibility for the effective operation of the statutory Youth Offending Team (in Warwickshire this is team is called the Warwickshire Youth Justice Service). As the council is required to re-commission the health service currently provided, this has formed a key driver for the work. The assessment will also contribute to Warwickshire’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and as such the findings will be reported to both the Chief Officer’s Board and the JSNA Strategic Group.

It is anticipated that the findings will also inform the wider commissioning decisions of CCGs, Warwickshire County Council, NHSE and the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).  It have have relevance for:

  • The current Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) review
  • Local Transformation Plan
  • Other children’s services plans
  • Plans relating to substance misuse and other risky behaviours among young people
  • Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) reforms
  • Priority Families Programme
