This report asks that the Warwickshire COVID 19 Recovery Plan, which for this year only replaces the more regular Youth Justice Plan, is approved by Cabinet.
Portfolio Holder – Councillor Jeff Morgan
Councillor Jeff Morgan opened this item by thanking the Youth Justice Team for its hard work. He was particularly impressed by its strength and commitment.
The report before Cabinet was different to previous years as there had been a need to reflect on Covid-19 recovery. It was not possible to benchmark performance in Warwickshire as data was not being collected and processed. However, it was known that throughout the Pandemic the service had been able to maintain contact with all of the young people on its books. Budget pressures continue with the cost of secure placements having increased.
That Cabinet approves the the Warwickshire COVID 19 Recovery Plan, which for this year only replaces the more regular Youth Justice Plan.
