Bridging Gaps and Changing Tracks: Supporting young people in the transition to adulthood in the criminal justice system

Bridging Gaps and Changing Tracks: Supporting young people in the transition to adulthood in the criminal justice system

Today (6th February 2024) the AYJ publishes a report calling for reforms to ensure that as racially minoritised young people in the criminal justice system turn 18, the ‘by and for’ voluntary and community sector is there to support them - bridging gaps in statutory services and guiding young people to brighter futures. Bridging gaps and changing tracks: Supporting racially minoritised young people in the transition to adulthood in the criminal justice system is the first in a series of briefings from a project exploring the experiences of young people transitioning into adulthood, funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust. It draws on findings from our evidence review; an expert seminar with professionals from the criminal justice, racial justice, and voluntary and community sectors; visits and meetings with practitioners and civil servants; and interviews with racially minoritised young people.
