EQUAL Is Recruiting New Members To Its National Independent Advisory Group

Do you have a passion help to improve the outcomes for black and Muslim young male offenders?

We are recruiting new members to the EQUAL National Independent Advisory Group.

EQUAL National Independent Advisory Group (NIAG)

EQUAL (originally called the Young Review) was established following the launch of the Young Review report in December 2014. Our vision is a criminal justice system (CJS) that delivers fair outcomes for all. It aims to provide leadership and advice to government (MOJ/HMPPS/YJB) and providers (statutory, private and voluntary) with the support of the NIAG to help improve outcomes for BAME and Muslim communities in the CJS. EQUAL concentrates on three key policy areas:

  • Prisons and probation
  • Policing of BAME young people
  • The Youth Justice System

The advisory group consists of up to 15 representatives, openly recruited, from key voluntary and community organisations or academics and individuals from civil society that have an appropriate set of competencies to contribute to addressing the issues.

We are looking for up to four new members for the group.

Those appointed will reflect a wide range of skills and experience but, critically, will have a strong desire, and the knowledge, skills and experience, to make a real difference. 

Positions are voluntary so members are not paid but reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

Closing date for applications is 23 August 2020
