SCYJ Respond to the Transforming Management of Young Adults in Custody Consultation

Recently the Ministry of Justice begun consulting on proposals that would remove 18-20 year olds from the young adult secure estate. This would mean that children turning 18 in prison will go straight from the youth secure estate to an adult prison. SCYJ are concerned about the effects this will have on young people and have outlined those concerns in a letter to the Ministry of Justice.
