Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are over-represented in the youth and adult prison populations, at 45% and 26% respectively.

Reoffending, school exclusion, stop and search and unemployment rates are significantly higher for black young people. BAME community based service providers should play a greater role in supporting BAME young offenders and reducing reoffending.

How do we ensure HMPPS commissioning is more responsive to the needs of BAME young offenders?

This free seminar will focus on practical solutions and overcoming the barriers to change.

The event will be held at Leeds Beckett University. For further details, please see the event flyer or to request your free seminar place please book here.
