They provide concise and easily accessible advice and guidance for front-line staff. They are not intended as a complete review of all evidence but an initial summary of helpful information and guidance. 

Attached below is the briefing concerning supporting children who are Black, Asian or have specific cultural or religious needs. Children within the secure estate represent many different cultures and religious beliefs and therefore the importance for staff to be equipped with the knowledge and practical solutions to support the children and young people in their care is paramount. The text discusses themes of food, clothing, personal care, events and measures to embrace the opportunities to understand and raise awareness that different needs require different types of support.
