13 Feb Just Children Youth Consultation Event
On February 13th 1- 3pm we held the Just Children Youth Event in partnership with the Children’s Rights Alliance for England in Islington, London.
The aims of the event were:
- To consult with under 18s on their experiences of the youth justice system including contact with the police, going to court, relationships and people and perceptions of young people by adults and in the media.
- To give under 18s the opportunity to share their views on the current youth justice system, in particular; what works and what doesn’t; which adults influence their experiences; and what they think needs to change to ensure the system prioritises the welfare of children and young people.
- To record and use responses to inform the development of the Just Children project beyond the initial scoping phase.
Peer Power Advisory Board member Natalie Atkinson led with her experiences of services and our Peer Leaders facilitated discussions with young people on topics:
- Going to Court
- Perceptions of Young People
