Children and young people in conflict with the law need love and support, not locking up. There are better ways to ensure that the troubled child of today does not become the adult prisoner of tomorrow. Justice for children and young people is at the heart of the Howard League’s work.
This publication is intended to be a guide for any practitioners who work with vulnerable young adults. We hope that this will be a useful guide for people to understand the rights and entitlements of young adults and assist in enabling practitioners to promote access to suitable support for young adults.
