Supporting Muslim Children: Effective Practice Briefing – Youth Custody Service (June 2021)

Summary Attached below is briefing from YCS concerning supporting children who are Muslim. 



Youth Custody Service have produced a variety of Effective Practice Briefings, which have been produced by the YCS Quality Development Team. the briefings are based on up to date evidence and engagement with children, staff and key stakeholders. 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 Muslim children.  This briefing covers a range of practice that will enable staff to understand and respond to the needs of children who follow the Islamic faith. It suggests a range of very practical measures to help staff demonstrate that they have considered and responded to the child’s individual circumstances which may help to minimise any unnecessary barriers to engagement and building trust.
