Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


GMCA have recently revised and launched a new GM Youth Justice Transformation Plan. As part of promoting the plan and beginning to drive implementation and delivery the Lead DCS for Youth Justice asked that an in-person event be held with partners to support this. We feel this is important to provide a chance for partners to come together, collaborate and identify how we can better work together at a GM level.

The event will be attended by Youth Justice Services, wider local authority colleagues who are key to delivery, GMP and GMCA. The CEO of the Youth Justice Board has agreed to attend to introduce the event to set the national context and Dr Alex Chard, an expert in research in this field, will also be in attendance to provide an input around his research into intergenerational violence and the impacts of this on young people.


£1200 (excl.VAT) to the Chamber of Commerce for room hire for a Youth Justice Transformation Plan event. The room is booked from 12-4:30pm. The venue holds 100 people to accommodate all partners in attendance as this is a large event and there were no other rooms available in Central Manchester on this date or time with this capacity. We need to have this in central Manchester due to accessibility and the external partners attending.
