SCYJ has submitted written evidence to the Joint Committee on Human Rights inquiry into the use of solitary confinement and constraint in the children’s custodial estate.
SCYJ’s submission outlines how:
- Solitary confinement and restraint always risk breaching a child’s human rights.
- The use of solitary confinement and restraint is on the rise.
- This shows a failure to adopt a child-focused approach to custody. We press for a wholesale reform of the custody system for children.
