Network OHRN for advice and guidance, The Linkworker Service was developed and delivered by The Disabilities Trust Foundation.
Declarations, Professor Huw Williams collaborated with The Disabilities Trust to secure additional funding from the Barrow. Cadbury Trust for the linkworker project and the production of this report Professor Huw Williams and Dr Prathiba. Chitsabesan provided initial advice and guidance on data collection and service evaluation to The Disabilities Trust. for the Youth Linkworker service Professor Huw Williams also co ordinated and or authored some recent reports. cited in this report such as the British Psychological Society BPS response to the Justice Committee Inquiry into. Young Adult Offenders and the BPS position paper on Children and Young People in the criminal justice system. Deborah Fortescue of The Disabilities Trust provided feedback on the penultimate draft of this report. Young people with Traumatic Brain Injury in custody. Executive Summary, There is growing evidence that young people YP within the youth justice system have high levels of needs with. regard to health education and social and emotional well being Studies consistently indicate high levels of mental. health needs and neurodevelopmental disorders amongst young offenders including Traumatic Brain Injury TBI. These needs are often unmet due to a lack of appropriate screening and identification limited access to evidence. based interventions and poor continuity of care This is particularly apparent amongst YP in custody. The initial aims of this project were to establish whether it was possible to. 1 Identify young adults with a brain injury who enter custody. 2 Develop a care pathway and provide dedicated support to YP with a brain injury. 3 Raise awareness of brain injury within a Young Offender Institution. From these aims a Linkworker LW service for YP was developed by The Disabilities Trust Foundation This report. describes that service and documents a preliminary service evaluation. In summary it was possible to set the service up evolve it in a dynamic and changing environment so that it. appears to fit the needs of the young person across a wider spectrum of ages It also appears that it is with. appropriate staffing feasible to screen for TBI in the population and this may contribute to increased awareness. of such issues in a young person s care and management. In conducting this service evaluation it was not possible to collect data that would show whether there was a. change in the trajectory health well being and crime of YP through LW involvement However service level data. was available on a sample of YP and in this context it is possible to note the following. The LW service was designed delivered and deployed within what would be expected for a neurorehabilitation. and forensic rehabilitation and forensic rehabilitation service hybrid. Referrals were made to the service and it was supporting YP who had relevant TBI in terms of severity and. neuropsychological impairments, Such TBI would be expected to interfere with traditional forensic rehabilitation FR. The young person had significant criminal histories and mental health problems. Additional input in a range of areas could well have improved outcomes for the young person in terms of mental. health well being and criminogenic needs, Therefore the service would appear to be meeting the key aims defined at inception From the feedback it appears. that the service was acceptable to and valued by YP and staff It is important to emphasise that the YP had. complex conditions because TBI is a keystone condition within a constellation of challenges drug and alcohol. mood disorder lack of familial coherence care home etc lack of education and work skills and or experience. This evaluation highlights the need for appropriate key working for such a vulnerable group. We would therefore recommend further adoption of linkworker type services within custodial settings and the. need to be embed them within larger multi site studies Such services could provide a vital link across staff teams. working with individuals with TBI and effect change A linkworker may enable the identification of an underlying. TBI which allows for services to be deployed that are responsive to specific needs and learning styles in order to. successfully engage with the young person This is essential in order to develop support plans and to allow. resources to be used cost effectively rather than attempting to engage YP in generic interventions which may not. take into account their specific profile of needs, Young people with Traumatic Brain Injury in custody.

Introduction, Neurological disability ND is a major source of human suffering and socio health burden Acquired Brain Injury. ABI is one main form of ND where the brain is affected by a virus stroke or trauma Traumatic brain injury TBI. is the main form of ABI and the leading cause of death and disability in children and young adults 1 TBI is widely. acknowledged as a major global health and social concern 2. This report looks at individuals with ND who are at risk of offending and entering the Criminal Justice System. CJS ND is a major issue in this population and TBI is particularly prevalent For the purposes of this report we. draw on the ND literature in particular with reference to ABI and TBI Where relevant we note the umbrella of. disorders referred to in specific studies and programmes ABI and TBI are not directly interchangeable and every. individual with a ND may have various degrees of impairment severity with limits set by society on their optimal. life experience Nevertheless there is a substantial heterogeneity of experience across and within ND and key. themes emerge that may apply to the care treatment and support of this population. The development organisation and evaluation of a service is discussed that addresses the needs of YP aged 15 21. years with ND particularly with TBI and who are in the CJS The term Young People who Offend YPO and or. Service User SU will be used as appropriate, The report draws conclusions from the study and makes recommendations that will optimise care support and. better outcomes for this vulnerable population, Young people with Traumatic Brain Injury in custody.
