‘Just Children’ Project Begins

Peer Power began work on the ‘Just Children’ project in collaboration with the Children’s Rights Alliance for England and Just for Kids Law, supported by Lankelly Chase.

The starting point for Just Children was that the youth justice system in England and Wales fails the most disadvantaged children in the country; with a nearly 70% re-offending rate and at a cost of £4 billion a year (a revolving door and a lack of effective support). The aim of the project was:

  • To provide a multi-dimensional approach to ¬†transforming the youth justice system in England and Wales and
  • To support change in the youth justice system from adversarial and punitive to child rights-centred and welfare oriented.
  • Provide a six month exploratory project to consult with service users and the sector, identifying gaps and avoiding duplication.
