The article reports on the launch of the youth justice unit in Great Britain in November 2007. Children's secretary Ed Balls said the unit would deploy 30 staff from the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). The move was seen as promoting a more child-focused approach to youth justice rather than custody for the majority of young people.
