Lord Dholakia

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many youth offending team managers are (a) male or female; (b) white, black, Asian or from other ethnic groups; and (c) from social services, probation, police or from other professional backgrounds. [HL1996]

Lord Bach

There are 154 youth offending teams in place across England and Wales. 112 of the managers of the teams are male and 42 are female. Information is not currently available on their ethnicity. Information available to the Youth Justice Board suggests 89 of the managers have a social services background, 48 a probation service background and 17 another professional background, including police, education, health and voluntary sector.
