News item posted: 04 April 2014

The Alliance is the partnership between Catch22 and Turning Point, two of the UKs leading social businesses and Serco, a FTSE 100 company and a major Provider of Government contracts. It was created as an equal partnership in 2006.

The Alliance welcomes the changes proposed by the Ministry of Justice in the 'Transforming Youth Custody 'consultation and sees significant opportunities to work in new ways by putting education at the heart of detention; leading to reduced offending and safer communities whilst achieving the required cost reduction.

The Alliance agrees that radical reform is required but the overarching aim must be to deliver seamless services to young people; commencing at the point of sentence and implemented before, during and following release into the community.
