The Youth Custody Service provides support and care for all children and young people in custody between the ages of 10-17 in England and Wales. They work with a range of partners and agencies to improve life chances for young people, learning from research and best practice as well as bringing the young persons voice into service design.

A fantastic well done to Nii from all of the Spurgeons team on being recognised for his dedication to supporting the young people at HMP Feltham.
