Looked After Children in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent

The purpose of 'Understanding why looked after children in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are over represented in the Criminal Justice System' report is to investigate and better understand the local picture of children in care who are involved in offending behaviour to help shape commissioning responses to these challenges, specifically in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. 


This report, commissioned by the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Offender Management Commissioning Development Board, with funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire, has been produced by a joint working group including members from Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Staffordshire Police and Youth Offending Services (YOS).
