Young Family Homelessness
Vulnerable Children & Young People
Who are the children and young people in juvenile justice?
We know that we can make a real difference by keeping children and young people out of juvenile justice detention. That means addressing the risk factors that can lead to contact with juvenile justice, reforming the system so that fewer children and young people are held on remand (4,000 every year are held on remand but will not get a custodial sentence) and changing our laws to make it easier for children and young people to get bail if they have been arrested.
