Welsh youth offending service receives lowest possible performance rating

A Welsh youth offending service has been rated inadequate after inspectors raised "serious concerns" about its standard of work with child criminals.

Cardiff Youth Offending Service (YOS) received the lowest possible performance rating across the board for the first time and has been told to improve in every aspect of its work. In response Cardiff Council has published a two-year plan to transform youth justice in the city. The council said the strategy, called All Our Futures - will help better tackle the risks which some children in Cardiff face, including of being targeted for criminal exploitation.

The YOS service deals with 10 to 18-year-olds who have been convicted of crimes, or those who have come to the attention of police. The body is formed of council officials, police and probation as well as health and social care workers. In three cases, inspectors identified specific safeguarding and public protection concerns, and told bosses to draw up urgent action plans. National strategies on spotting risks from county lines gangs were also not being followed, leaving children under supervision in danger of being targeted or posing a threat to others.

Chief inspector of probation, Justin Russell, said: "These findings are very disappointing. We had serious concerns about the organisation's senior leadership and structure, and the quality of its work with children who have offended or who are at risk of offending."
