Youth Offending Teams

Sadiq Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which youth offending team has had the largest reduction in its annual budget since 2011; and how much funding each youth offending team received in 2012. [142284]

Jeremy Wright: Youth offending teams (YOTs) are multi-agency partnerships funded primarily by the local authority and local statutory partners, including the police, probation, health authorities and—where relevant—the Welsh Assembly Government. The Ministry of Justice contributes funding through the Youth Justice Board (YJB) in the form of youth justice grants to YOTs.

As at April 2011, the YJB distributed such grants to 158 YOTs. Individual contributions vary but on average the youth justice grant represents around a third of a YOT's funding. The following data have been provided by the YJB and relate to total YOT funding from all statutory partners rather than just the YJB element of it.

Trafford YOT had the largest reduction in 2011-12 in funding from statutory partners and the YJB: funding reduced from £3.22 million in 2010-11 to £1.59 million in 2011-12, a decline of 50.4%.

The following table shows details of funding received by each YOT in 2011-12, the latest year that data are available, broken down by YOT and financial year (as published in the 2011-12 Youth Justice Statistics

http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/statistics/youth-justice/yjb-stats-2011-12.pdf

in Table B.4) . These figures have been drawn from operational sources, which are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing and can be subject to change over time.

YOT funding between financial years and areas is not directly comparable due to changes in the way funding has been allocated and termination of discrete funding streams over set periods of time. Due to boundary changes, the number of YOTs have fluctuated over the period in question which again makes close comparisons difficult.
