Criminal Care? · 21 Dec 2018
This is our story: Children and young people on criminalisation in residential care
Earlier this week we published our fourth briefing, which tells the stories of four children and young people who have been criminalised in residential care in their own words.
Over the course of our programme of work we have interviewed many young people about their experiences and these interviews inform everything we do. In this briefing, however, we have sought to tell four stories in more depth so that we might paint a picture of the young person behind each story.
The young people’s testimonies illustrate how every aspect of the care system can impact on criminalisation and demonstrate that a whole system approach is needed to protect vulnerable children from this form of harm.

This is our last post of 2018. It has been a great year for our programme of work and we are looking forward to carrying forward the momentum we’ve generated into 2019.
But for now…Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
