Ed Cornmell, YCS Executive Director, highlights the events on offer from the Youth Custody Service as part of Insights23.
I’m really proud to lead the Youth Custody Service and to see our staff supporting Insights23 this year. It’s a great opportunity for colleagues in HMPPS and the wider criminal justice sector to hear, learn and understand more about the important work we do.
What is YCS?
The Youth Custody Service is made up of five Young Offender Institutions (YOIs), one Secure Training Centre (STC) and eight Secure Children’s Homes (SCHs).
We provide child-centred services and provide safe, secure and decent care for our children and young people.
Opportunities to learn about YCS
This year, we are offering several events where you can hear from staff working with some of society’s most complex and vulnerable children.

Already in the YCS?
Insights23 is an excellent chance to learn more from colleagues in the adult prison and probation environments, and from partners working in the community, including some of our youth justice partners. I’d encourage you all to get involved and support your teams to attend.
