The Youth Justice Sector Improvement Partnership (YJSIP) is a tripartite partnership between the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales (YJB), the Association of YOT Managers (AYM) and senior youth justice leaders. The Partnership provides improvement support for the sector, by the sector and always with the sector.

In order to access YJSIP support, individual Services should complete an application form.

YJSIP support is a universal support offer open to all youth offending teams (YOTs) in England and Wales. Sector improvement support is by invite and is not imposed, often seen as a critical friend approach from fellow youth justice sector colleagues who know the business.
YJSIP has developed a menu of support to best match need and includes:

  • Peer Review
  • Bespoke peer support
  • Coaching
  • Mentoring
  • Special Educational Needs and disability (support for YOTs around SEND provision for children)

If you want to know more, you should go to the AYM website or contact YJB Sector Improvement Partnership Lead Louise Ranalescotos who will be able to support you.
