Speech: Dr Phillip Lee’s speech at Centre for Social Justice launch event

first_imgThank you very much for inviting me along to this launch event today. Firstly can I thank the team at Centre for Social Justice for this insightful report. It not only raises a number of pertinent points about the challenges which female offenders, and the services responding to them face, but also outlines practical and creative proposals we can take to tackle them.Secondly, I would like to emphasise an important theme that runs throughout this report: the need for a multi-agency, gender-responsive approach to female offenders that brings together local and national partners in a coordinated and accountable manner.Female offenders are some of our most vulnerable members of society and often have complex needs. As articulated in the report, a significant number of these women have histories of mental health issues, substance misuse, trauma and abuse, homelessness, poor education and unemployment.For many, these issues have developed prior to their involvement with the criminal justice system. Many of these women are also likely to be already known to, or already engaged with, different public services before they even commit a crime.Despite this, we know that outcomes for a significant number of women remain persistently and unacceptably poor.We must address these issues at the outset if we want to reduce crime, reduce reoffending, protect victims and the public.Achieving this requires a joined-up approach from the relevant Government departments, national and local statutory services, and the voluntary sector, to develop a coordinated, multi-agency response. I’m pleased to say we are making some real progress in achieving this. And, this is a principle that also underlines my female offender strategy.Whole System Approach and women’s centresAs set out in the report, we are investing £1 million pounds seed funding to support local areas to develop new ways of working with female offenders by adopting a multi-agency – often termed Whole System – approach.The whole system model brings together local agencies, criminal justice, statutory and voluntary. Together they provide the holistic, targeted support a female offender needs, with shared investment and outcomes. The National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies are key partners, ensuring that female offenders receive targeted, wrap-around support both through the gate and in the community.Women’s centres are often at the heart of many of these Whole-System Approach models. And I have been impressed by the women’s centres that I have visited. Over the past year I met staff and service users at Nelson Trust and Anawim, which are both providing valuable support to vulnerable women.I recognise the hugely important role that these women’s centres can play in supporting female offenders and those at risk of offending. Our best response to female offending must be one that is locally-led.Liaison and diversionAnother recent success commended in the report is that of Liaison and Diversion (L&D) services. L&D services place clinical staff at police stations and courts to provide assessments and referrals at an earlier stage. In doing so, we can intervene early to support people with mental health, drug and alcohol issues as soon as they come to the attention of the criminal justice system.L&D services will be operating across 82% of England by the end of March 2018, and across 90% of the country by the end of March 2019. Full rollout is expected by 2020/21.And we are going further. NHS England are currently enhancing ‘women’s pathways’ across all L&D services, to address the specific needs of women in the criminal justice system.A specific women’s lead will be appointed in each service to focus on this. Services will: offer to see all females who come into custody provide females with the choice of the gender of their practitioner offer gender-sensitive tools for screening and provide effective onward referrals to gender specific and sensitive services.The needs of particular groups such as women sex workers and foreign national women, will also be considered. These pathways will be co-designed with women with lived experience. This will mean that more female offenders will be diverted away from the criminal justice system in the first place, away from charge, or to a community sentence. I firmly believe that early intervention is an important part of our response to female offending. Not only does it improve outcomes for these women but also their children, their families and the public as a whole.DevolutionAs the report outlines, Police & Crime Commissioners (PPC’S) have a real appetite to be more involved in a new approach for female offenders.This is extremely welcome. PCCs play a valuable role as visible and accountable leaders of the local police and crime systems. And Combined Authorities bring together several services which are crucial to reduce reoffending.I recognise the potential benefits that a more locally-led system offers. I am keen to work closely with PCCs and Combined Authorities to explore this further.It is crucial that we work more closely with these local partners to tackle the issues leading women into the criminal justice system.To deliver this, we have signed devolution agreements with several areas, including Greater Manchester, Liverpool City Region, West Midlands and Greater London.The Ministry of Justice is committed to exploring options to provide greater devolution of criminal justice responsibility and budgets to local commissioners.Women at courtAnother issue raised in the report was that of awareness of pre-sentence report writers of the disposals available in their areas. We have recently undertaken an audit of pre-sentence reports and assessment tools for female offenders at court. This looked at how we could take a more gender responsive and trauma informed approach towards the women we are working with.Cross-departmental work is now progressing to increase the quality of assessments for female offenders and a work plan has been developed to take this work forward.This work is also looking to increase the take up of effective community sentences in line with sentencing guidelines. This work is being carried out in partnership with the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRC’s).Workforce developmentHowever, for these changes to have the necessary impact, it is essential that we have a gender informed workforce.We continue to roll out Trauma Informed training to criminal justice professionals. Training is now being extended across the National Probation Service and CRCs, as well as to prison staff.We have also supported the wider Criminal Justice System roll out of the ‘Safeguarding Children When Sentencing Mothers’ training material completed by Dr Shona Minson.This training raises awareness of the diverse implications of maternal imprisonment for children.I would like to reiterate my thanks to Dr Minson for her invaluable work.Benefits and employmentToday’s report also rightly highlights the challenges which prisoners face when leaving prison, particularly around access to welfare support.Prisoners are able to speak to a Department of Work and Pensions Work Coach before release. They can make an appointment at the relevant Job Centre as early as the day of release. Once the former prisoner attends the Job Centre to complete their claim, eligible prisoners can receive funds within hours.However, we recognise that more can be done. That is why we are working with the Department of Work and Pensions to improve the process with the aim of enabling a claim in advance of release.And I want to do more to help women into employment on release too. Getting and keeping a job can change people’s lives and work is the best route out of crime. The prison and probation service have an important role to help offenders build the skills and experience they need whilst they’re in prison so they can have the right attitude for work and get a job when they’re released. As the Secretary of State outlined on 6 March, we will shortly be launching our Education and Employment Strategy. This will set out our approach to helping offenders get the skills they need to find a job and avoid the activities that landed them in prison in the first place.AccommodationAnother factor that plays an important part in rehabilitation is accommodation. There is considerable evidence which tells us there is a link between lack of stable accommodation and reoffending. Suitable accommodation plays an important part in enabling offenders to get a job, into training, or registered with a GP.HMPPS has undertaken some initiatives to improve access to accommodation, such as expanding the BASS contract to offer accommodation to offenders on licence.We continue to work with all probation providers to help make sure offenders get the support they need to find accommodation on release.But accommodation is a serious problem which requires a cross departmental response, as recognised in the report’s recommendations.We are working with Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to improve access to housing for those being released from prison.As part of this, we are investigating how Housing First and proposals regarding the private rented sector could help to ensure that offenders with complex needs, including female offenders, can secure suitable accommodationThis work will form part of the wider Government commitment to eliminate homelessness.ConclusionAs you know, my female offender strategy is due shortly. I hope to outline in this what further progress we have made in the areas I have highlighted today, and others, to address the challenges which female offenders face. This is a complex issue and one that I want to get right.Thank you for having me here today to support the launch of this report.last_img read more

Colliers International: Recovery to the level of 2019 is expected only around 2022 or 2023

first_imgThe next webinar table will be on topic “Logistics and distribution – did we take the opportunity?” and will be held in Monday, 19.10.2020/10/XNUMX at XNUMX o’clock on ZOOM, with a live broadcast on YouTube channel i Facebook profile Colliers International Croatia.  “As for overnight stays in commercial accommodation, the biggest losers this season are the hotels with the largest drop in overnight stays, by more than 70% compared to last year. Precisely because of the possibility of isolation and easier distance maintenance, camps and private accommodation, despite the loss, showed much greater resilience.. “, He concluded Ivan Laljak, Consultant from the Appraisal and Investment Advisory Department. “What we have noticed is that holiday tourism is recovering faster and easier, unlike the segment of city hotels that is still suffering, as business meetings and conferences have switched to digital and online platforms. We also expect that apartments in larger cities that were used for short-term rental to tourists will be switched to a long-term rental offer. It is the health pandemic that has accelerated the development of technology, such as the increasing use of contactless payments, the introduction of digital check-in station, or enabling check in via mobile devices”, Laljak gave us a closer look at the trends. trends As the first half of the year was marked by a complete lockdown, not only did holiday tourism stop, but business travel was replaced by video conferencing. This resulted record low occupancy rates worldwide. In the first half of the year, revenues of the main hotel groups in Croatia fell by 70% to 80% compared to the first half of 2019. Croatian hotel groups generate the majority of revenue in Q3, and we will only find out the final results. It is important to emphasize that the decline in hotel traffic was more conditioned by the decline in occupancy, while overnight prices remained relatively stable. In announcing the season in late May and early June, a period marked by great uncertainty, including border closures and epidemiological measures and restrictions, about 30% of last year’s turnover was forecast. In the world, European, and consequently in the domestic capital market in the period from February to March this year corrected the share prices of leading tourist companies by up to 50%, which testifies to the great fear and caution of investors in that period. In the meantime, prices on the Croatian market have partially recovered, but are still below the pre-crisis level since the beginning of the year. Despite the uncertainty, the general consensus is that a recovery to the 2019 level is not expected until around 2022 or 2023. “Despite the circumstances, we witnessed the great demand of Croatia as a tourist destination from mid-July to the end of August. Unfortunately, closing the borders and prescribing the necessary tests for COVID-19 when entering the country, had the effect of shortening the season and lost part of the tourists who decided to return to their home countries so as not to get stuck at the border. We do not expect major structural changes in the tourism sector in the long run, as demand remains stable.”, He said Filip Dumbović, Senior Consultant from the Appraisal and Investment Advisory Department. The Croatian National Tourist Board has published the latest data showing that they are the achieved results are still better than expected. Namely, in the first 9 months, about 40% of arrivals and 50% of overnight stays were realized compared to the same period last year. There were fewer tourists, but on average they stayed longer in Croatia and the average length of stay per guest was over 7 days. Brownfield and greenfield investments in larger hotel projects for which the financial issue has been resolved and which are in the process of construction have been continued, while most projects that were still under consideration were postponed. She was noticed high demand for hotel portfolios and for hotels with more than 100 rooms. Sellers who are not forced to sell real estate and whose moratorium and government measures have eased the situation hold the price while on the other hand investors want to take advantage of the circumstances and seek discount opportunities. Colliers International Croatia, Slovenia & BiH has started a new cycle of presenting the situation on the real estate market to a wider audience. In a slightly different format from the summer round tables with renowned players on the market, as webinars under the umbrella title “2020 – what impact has it had on the market and what else can we expect from it? ” for 30 minutes every Monday at 10 a.m. gives a review of one real estate sector. They are today Filip Dumbović, Senior Consultant, and Ivan Laljak, A consultant from the Department of Appraisals and Investment Advisory, presented the true state of the previous tourist season and explained in more detail investments in the HTL segment. “There are two main reasons why Zadar is the southernmost destination in the top 10 in terms of the number of overnight stays this year. The first reason is the higher share of domestic tourists, and the second reason is the stronger resilience of destinations based on road transport, while higher losses were recorded by destinations dependent on air transport, such as Split and Dubrovnik, “explained Laljak. Accommodation capacity Among the most significant transactions are the acquisition of HTP Orebić by pension funds, the redistribution of shares in Kharisma hotels taken over by TUI Group from Fortenova and Hotel Riviera in Pula which Arenaturist bought from the Republic of Croatia. Positive expectations remain in the investment market for the end of the year. Certain key factors like quality of supply and content, proximity to major emitting markets and a small number of reported cases of infection showed how Istria has maintained the status of the most desirable destination and leading tourist region in terms of the number of overnight stays in Croatia this year. In the top 10 most sought after destinations this summer no Dubrovnik, while it topped last year with 3,8 million overnight stays. Vir is the absolute winner this year with over 2 million overnight stays, but with almost 80% of overnight stays realized in non-commercial accommodation. John introduced how the development of tourism moved, an important industry in Croatia, which has close to 17% share in gross value added (total direct and indirect effects of tourism), looking mostly at the results of this year’s tourist season and which are expectations and forecasts for the future period. Tourism development “What came to life during the health pandemic is the so-called Hybrid hospitality: hotels to work in. This concept combines hotel services with flexible office space. Namely, certain hotels with a low level of occupancy have become an extension of office space in such a way that lobbies are used for meetings and hotel rooms for work. In Europe, we see interesting conversions of hotels into business premises, so we are witnessing the conversion of hotels into nursing homes”, Explained Dumbović. You can also watch a recording of the lecture on the YT channel, below. The strong development of tourism in Croatia has been noticed for the past 10 years, which is shown to us year by year by the numbers in arrivals and overnight stays. The growth of physical indicators was accompanied by the growth of revenues from tourism, which in the period from 2011 to 2019 grew at an average annual rate of 7.5%. Record 2019 revenues from tourism amounted to over 10,5 billion euros. Prema CBS-u, it was recorded last year 19,3 million arrivals and 90,7 million overnight stays in commercial accommodation. Figures by Croatian National Tourist Board (data by system eVisitor), are even larger as they include both commercial and non-commercial accommodation. Croatian tourism strongly depends on foreign tourists who generated as much as 92% of total overnight stays last year. Looking at the regions, most overnight stays were realized in the County of Istria – as much as 29% of all overnight stays in Croatia in 2019. As the biggest pain of our tourism is emphasized precisely seasonality, characterized by the highest activity in the summer months. At last year’s level, July and August generated almost 60% of all overnight stays, and together with June and September as much as 84% ​​of total overnight stays.

Arsenal’s red card blues continue with Per Mertesacker dismissal against Chelsea

first_img GABRIEL (Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0, Stamford Bridge, September 19, 2015) A running feud with Costa saw Gabriel retaliate with a petulant kick and get dismissed. Costa might have seen red himself after catching Laurent Koscielny with a flailing arm and chest-butting the Frenchman before Gabriel naively intervened. Costa was retrospectively banned for the incident with Koscielny. SANTI CAZORLA (Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0, Stamford Bridge, September 19, 2015) The Spain playmaker was booked in either half by referee Mike Dean as the Gunners finished the game with nine players. Cazorla’s second yellow card came for a trip on former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas as Chelsea claimed a first home win of the season. KIERAN GIBBS (Chelsea 6 Arsenal 0, Stamford Bridge, March 22, 2014) There was a case of mistaken identity in Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge as Gibbs, rather than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was sent off for handling the ball in the box. Referee Andre Marriner admitted his mistake and neither player served a suspension. Per Mertesacker on Sunday became the fourth Arsenal player to be sent off in the last five Premier League games with Chelsea. The German was last man when he was adjudged to have tripped Diego Costa in the 18th minute. Here Press Association Sport looks at the Gunners’ other recent dismissals in derby clashes with the Blues. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Dr Mansingh: 2020 CPL could still be on

first_imgCRICKET analyst and sports physician Dr Akshai Mansingh believes that the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season could still happen this year, depending on the health status of participating Caribbean islands.The eighth edition of the T20 tournament is still scheduled to start in August, but there is uncertainty due to the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In an ESPNcricinfo report on April 17, CPL organisers explored options for hosting the tournament, including having no fans in attendance. CPL chief operating officer Peter Russell, in that report, said that the time frame allows them not to make a snap decision.Mansingh, who is also dean of the Faculty of Sport at The University of the West Indies, Mona, believes that it is possible to have the event in some capacity as the number of recoveries climbs regionally, but is waiting to see if the current quarantine period of two weeks will be maintained as it could play a factor.“The way things are going, the trend that it’s taking, it suggesting that it’s probably going to be feasible to have it in some shape or form. What we have to see is what quarantine periods are because if we continue to have two-week quarantine periods, it would be impractical to move players from jurisdiction to jurisdiction if they have to wait out two weeks of quarantine,” Mansingh told The Gleaner.IMPROVEMENTSParticipating countries have been reporting improvements in their fight against the virus. St Kitts and Nevis, which has a CPL franchise (the Patriots), on Monday reported that all 15 of its positive COVID-19 patients had recovered. Local restrictions have been relaxed, but the borders remain closed.While all six participating countries (Jamaica, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados) are currently under travel restrictions, for some countries, there are plans to reopen borders in some capacity this summer. St Lucia, for instance, home to the Zouks, has announced a phased reopening, starting with air travel on June 4.Mansingh said that games could happen in territories that have combated the virus successfully and have removed some travel restrictions.“So the scenario does exist where in the Caribbean, you can go to certain jurisdictions where COVID would have petered out and then play within a bubble, having no spectators and so on. It might be feasible to have it in one or two territories,” he said. “Island-hopping may be something that has to be reconsidered if quarantined periods are going to be as they are now.”Mansingh stressed that the organisers have time on their side to determine a path forward.“It’s not all lost; there is still time. There still is a bit of time to wait and see, but the trend we are seeing in the Caribbean suggests that in some form or the other, it probably would come off,” he said.(Extracted from The Gleaner)last_img read more
