IY 08 A Manifest for Youth Justice in Northern Ireland OCT 08.pdf

Recent media coverage and political commentary about young people, crime and anti-social behaviour has generated significant and often ill-informed debate. It is anticipated that policing and criminal justice matters, including youth justice, will be devolved to the Northern Ireland Assembly and it is vital that organisations working closely with children and young people in conflict with the law contribute to the development of appropriate policies and practices including prevention and diversion from offending and the criminal justice system. To that end, Include Youth has developed a Manifesto for Youth Justice in Northern Ireland.

HLPR 16 Criminal care ABSTRACT 2016.docx

This abstract provides details of research which concluded that children living in children’s homes are being criminalised at excessively high rates compared to other boys and girls, including those in other types of care and that there is a systemic problem across England and Wales that leads staff to resort to the police, often over minor incidents that would never come to officers’ attention if they happened in family homes.
