Overcoming the barriers to change for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic young offenders
November 14, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Academy for Social Justice Commissioning is holding a free seminar on Overcoming the barriers to change for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic young offenders. The evening seminar will be held on Wednesday, 14 November at Leeds Beckett University featuring Jeremy Crook Obe. (Download the full flyer for details)
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are over-represented in the youth and adult prison populations, 45% and 26% respectively.
Reoffending, school exclusion, stop and search and unemployment rates are significantly higher for black young people. BAME community based service providers should play a greater role in supporting BAME young offenders and reducing reoffending.
How do we ensure HMPPS commissioning is more responsive to the needs of BAME young offenders?
This free seminar will focus on practical solutions and overcoming the barriers to change.
