The CYCJ Stakeholder Survey takes place every two years, in order to ensure that the work
we do (such as our training, events and research) best serves the people who need it.
The 2018 Stakeholder Survey has focused predominantly on the views and needs of parents
and carers. Parents and carers are sometimes an overlooked element of the wider youth
justice ‘response’, yet they are often an important support to their child, frequently the first
response to any problematic behaviour and, where possible, should be a key element of any
care plan that is in place. However, we wanted to continue to provide an opportunity to
capture the views of the workforce, as well as listen to children and young people, and so a
small selection of their views are captured within this survey.
This short report presents the main findings from our Stakeholder Survey and how we plan
to address these.
