Review of the Youth Justice System in England and Wales

12th December 2016

In September 2015 Charlie Taylor was asked to lead a departmental review of the youth justice system for the Ministry of Justice.

The Taylor Review makes recommendations for extensive reform of the youth justice system covering devolution, courts, sentencing and custody.

The government’s response supports many of the principles of The Taylor Review and sets out the intention to review the governance of the system, improve the way we tackle youth offending and put education and health at the heart of youth custody.
