The Young Review

Launched within a climate of significant public sector reform the Young Review explored how  the disparity in outcomes experienced by young black and Muslim men in the criminal justice system might be addressed. The final report highlighted the need for a collaborative approach to ensure that the needs of service users from this target group are met.

Chaired by Baroness Young of Hornsey, with the support of the Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) and Clinks, the Young Review final report was launched in 2014.

Project 507’s CEO, Whitney Iles is currently a member of the Independent Advisory Group, which currently support the government to tackle the disproportionate over-representation of young black and/or Muslim men in the justice system and to embed the recommendations from the final report over a three year period.
