Sign up to end the criminalisation of children in residential care

Since the Howard League campaign began arrests of children in England and Wales have fallen by 64 per cent, with tens of thousands of children enjoying brighter futures. Even so, stubborn problems remain, such as the experience of looked-after children living in children’s homes, who are criminalised far more than other children. With your support we can ensure some of the most vulnerable children in the country are not dragged into a downward spiral of crime and custody.
