• Custody to community: how young people cope with release

      Bateman, Tim; Hazel, Neal; Beyond Youth Custody (Beyond Youth Custody, 2015-02-17)
      This report begins to address a gap in the knowledge about the way that young people experience the transition from custody back into the community. In particular, it highlights the stresses reported during a period of disorientation and reorientation immediately following release. The research team reanalysed thematically 59 transcripts that we have conducted with young people aged between 12 and 17 for studies on broader issues related to youth custody. Recommendations are produced in order to stimulate national and local debate on considering responses to the disorientation and reorientation during this period in order to allow for longer-term success in resettlement.
    • Resettlement of girls and young women: research report

      Bateman, Tim; Hazel, Neal; Beyond Youth Custody (Beyond Youth Custody, 2014-08-04)
      This report addresses a worrying gap in the knowledge about the effective resettlement of girls and young women. Reviewing research literature in a number of relevant areas, it cross-references evidence of what works in the resettlement of young people with what we know about the wider need of girls and young women. This iterative synthesis approach thus provides a gender-sensitive approach to inform policy and practice development in resettlement for this specific group.
