The Beyond Youth Custody programme closed on 31 May 2018. BYC was a six-year England-wide learning and awareness programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund as part of the Youth in Focus initiative. Since its inception in 2012, BYC built a robust evidence base about what works in terms of effective resettlement for young people. This evidence base – rooted in the views of children and young people – was used to challenge, advance and promote better thinking in policy and practice for the effective resettlement of young people leaving custody.

BYC was a partnership led by Nacro along with three research and evaluation partners: ARCS (UK), University of Salford and the University of Bedfordshire. YIF also funded 15 service delivery projects across the country to work with young people leaving custody
