November 2010

The Prison Reform Trust published a major report which shows that children with learning disabilities and other impairments are more likely to go to prison than other young people because the youth justice system is failing to recognise their needs. The report Seen and Heard: supporting vulnerable children in the youth justice system is based on a major survey of youth offending team (YOT) staff. The report's author Jenny Talbot has recently joined the NAAN Board.

Following the AGM in October, Gill Slocombe was appointed as the new NAAN Chair.
