Which Youth Offending Team has responsibility, post-sentence, for looked after children and care leavers moving to a different geographical area?

Things to consider:

Looked-after children (eligible and relevant) and care leavers remain the responsibility of the placing local authority, as corporate parents. Youth justice services should be delivered by the Host YOT under a ‘caretaking’ arrangement. However, the responsible local authority YOT (Home YOT) retains overall case management responsibility to ensure that youth justice processes are centrally coordinated during the time that the child or young person is in care.
