To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the £300m of Government funding announced for youth justice on 20th May 2022, if she will publish a breakdown of how much of that funding will be spent on each priority outlined.
6 June 2022
This Government has committed to invest at least £300m over the next three years to bolster our existing work to address youth crime across the country, with a particular focus on early intervention and prevention. It is important that funding is distributed to ensure both maximum impact in tackling youth offending and value for money for the taxpayer.
My officials and those in the Youth Justice Board will inform Youth Offending Teams across England and Wales of their 2022/23 allocation, from this overall funding, as soon as possible.
