TS109 - Collaborative Delivery of Youth Offending Team Services between Rochdale MBC and Bury MBC

Closed 12 Dec 2012

Opened 18 Sep 2012


Outline of Proposal

It is proposed as a basis for consultation that the Rochdale Youth Offending Team manage Bury Youth Offending Team and provide a number of integrated services, including the triage service, across both boroughs.

The courts and the custody suites that are available to young people from Rochdale Borough are now based in Bury, following the closure of this provision in Rochdale.  It is more effective to offer a unified triage service, aimed at diverting young people away from the criminal justice system.  We have also started to offer a joint presence in court, and it is acknowledged that there is further scope to develop joint practice over the coming months.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £71,400.

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics. The Equality Impact Assessment will be reviewed and updated as required, taking account of consultation feedback.
