    Abstract

    In this research project I have evaluated the impact of the introduction of the scaled approach and youth rehabilitation order for Youth Offending Team practitioners to assess if these new ways of working have affected, or not, the way in which they address both welfare and risk factors with young people who have committed an offence. A case study methodology has been adopted based on one youth offending team, and the use of semi-structured interviews has provided a qualitative approach. Five practitioners were interviewed in total and their data has been produced as transcribes. These practitioners concluded that the youth rehabilitation has made little impact on the work that they are delivering; however as individuals they are always mindful of the welfare needs of the young people they work with, coupled with risk management. They describe the completed issues connected with addressing both these factors and external resources to meet the increased demand for services.
