Rates of self-harm among children in custody have soared by 37 per cent in three years, fuelling concerns that there is a lack of support for vulnerable people in the youth justice system.

An analysis of government figures shows there were 108 incidents of self-harm for every 100 young people in custodial settings – which include those in young offenders institutions (YOIs), secure training centres (STCs) and secure children’s homes – in 2016-17, compared with 79 per 100 in 2013-14.

The rise was particularly stark in STCs and secure children’s homes, which accommodate young offenders aged between 12 and 17 who are deemed to be the most vulnerable.
