This report by the Improving the Effectiveness of the Youth Justice System Working Group describes the characteristics of effective local management of youth justice services and outlines a set of standards to improve delivery. The group believes strongly that the development of national standards for youth justice should take place in the context of integrated children’s services at a national and local level. All authorities should therefore review and update their children’s services plans to ensure that this report’s recommendations are effectively addressed. The group also believes that this mechanism should include three key elements: local commitment to the overall aims for Scotland’s youth justice services, an inter-agency youth justice strategy group, and an operational youth justice services team.

Place of publication:

This review of the place of methadone in drug treatment programmes, announced by former First Minister, Jack McConnell, in March 2006 following the death of 2 year old Derek Doran, consisted of three main phases: scoping the issue, reviewing current practice and improving practice. The findings reported here relate to work carried out under phase 1 (scoping the issue) on the level and circumstances of methadone use in Scotland. Information received primarily from NHS Boards includes the number of people receiving methadone treatment for drug misuse, the number of those who are on a daily supervised consumption regime, and the number of those who receive methadone who have children under the age of 16 living with them, all or part of the time. Information was also sought from Drug Action Teams (DATs) and Community Health Partnerships.
