This paper is the third in a series of regular updates intended to outline the latest available lessons from research about resettlement of young offenders. It provides an overview of the relevant literature published in the period since Beyond Youth Custody’s last update that was published in October 2013. •It highlights that the number of children and young adults in custody has continued to fall. Such falls are welcome but also have implications for resettlement services since the residual incarcerated population is likely to have more entrenched offending behaviour and higher concentration of problems. •It outlines some of the proposed changes to the secure estate including the provisions of the Offender Rehabilitation Bill and how they will affect young people in different ways. •It identifies that while there is an increasing understanding of the general principles that underlie effective resettlement work, there is less concrete evidence of the impact of particular interventions, especially where these are delivered by non-statutory partners.
