DownloadsYoung Adults in prison during the Covid-19 pandemic
The Howard League’s legal work and contact with young adults during the Covid-19 pandemic shows that this is a particularly difficult time for young adults in custody.
The regime in prisons has been severely restricted, and young adults are in prolonged solitary confinement. There are no face-to-face visits and no face-to-face education, and most support services have withdrawn.
Young adults in prisons must have access to a decent regime that meets their needs.
