The Virtual School for looked after children and care leavers, and the Speech and Language Therapy Service in Hackney provide support to re-engage young offenders with education, training and employment.
Hackney is also part of the North East London Resettlement Consortium (comprising six boroughs – Hackney, Islington, Redbridge, Newham, Enfield and Waltham Forest), which aims to minimise/prevent poor outcomes for young people leaving custody. For instance, the consortium has funded train-the-trainer Aggression Replacement Training (ART) for five members of staff in each local authority so that this learning can be cascaded amongst local staff. It is planned that Hackney staff will deliver the ART programme to youth justice recipients in both secure estates and the community.
The City of London uses a Youth Justice Service that is provided by Tower Hamlets
