Young Review submission to the Lammy Review
One of Clinks' partners, the Young Review, has responded to the government's review of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) representation in the Criminal Justice System. The Young Review was set up in partnership with Clinks in 2012 to focus on improving outcomes for young black and Muslim men in the criminal justice system, successfully concluding in 2014 with the Young Review report. Clinks is now a member of the Young Review Independent Advisory Group to the Ministry of Justice and the National Offender Management Service. This submission makes a number of recommendations, some of which were originally put forward in the Young Review report, including reviewing the process for downgrading a prisoner's status, further developing service user involvement, and improving the ethnic representation of staff in the criminal justice system.
