ABSTRACT
The article reports that chairperson of the Youth Justice Board (YJB), Frances Done, has insisted that the first major review of the organisation will be subject to fully independent scrutiny, even though she is its co-chair. The review, the first since the YJB was set up in 1998, will run until February 2010, just a few months before a general election is likely to take place. Since becoming YJB chair 18 months ago, Done said she had formed some firm views about how it should work.
