Serious Youth Violence Summit

This April, we were at 10 Downing Street discussing the effectiveness of the Criminal Justice System as part of the Prime Minister's Serious Youth Violence Summit.

We argued that in order to support the most marginalised young people who often end up in the criminal justice system, approaches must be based on empowering them, not simply punishing them. As part of this, young people who have been victims of serious youth violence require specialist support to deal with the impact of these experiences on their mental health and wellbeing.
