The South and West Yorkshire Resettlement Consortium Accommodation Standard Refresh (June 2022)

Summary: Overview and learning that emerged through the development, implementation and refresh of the South and West Yorkshire Resettlement Consortium Accommodation Standard from 2015 to 2022.

  

 

Description:  The South and West Yorkshire Resettlement Consortium Accommodation Standard was initially presented to the Yorkshire and Humber DCS Meeting on 9th December, 2016 and received support. The Accommodation Standard has subsequently been utilised across the area and the high-level focus on accommodation has enabled the local Youth Offending Services to have a good track record in providing accommodation on release. Colleagues in Youth Custody Services (YCS) advise that the accommodation problems for children on release from custody from South and West Yorkshire are very few. However following consideration of the resettlement data in late 2021 it was felt to be timely to highlight the Accommodation Standard to DCSs again not least because numbers of children in custody continue to fall. The Standard has subsequently been refreshed to include enhancements.
