Aim:

  • The Resettlement Support Panels Scheme core aim is to coordinate multi-agency support for the resettlement of young people through addressing substance misuse, accommodation problems, mental health and education issues.
  • The Resettlement Support Panel also seeks to support young people around family and peer mediation; appropriate use of leisure time; developing life skills; raising confidence and self-esteem; and finally making positive decision.

 

Description:
In July 2009 six Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) in Wales participated in a pilot to expand effective resettlement provision for young people aged 12-17 who were either leaving custody or were at risk of entering custody. The Resettlement Support Panel Scheme aims to support young people as they are preparing to leave custody to ensure that they are supported to not re-offend.
The YOTs involved in the pilot were: Bridgend; Merthyr Tydfil; Wrexham; Blaenau Gwent / Caerphilly; Gwynedd / Ynys Mon; and Conwy / Denbighshire.
