The funding currently allocated for the proposed 360 place young offender institution (YOI) at Glen Parva is approximately £80 million.

The YOI is currently planned for delivery in mid-2012. The operation of the establishment will be subject to a competition to start later this year, and decisions on the appropriate level of build up of young people will be made in conjunction with the selected operator.
