Submission in response to ‘Review of the Youth Justice Act 1997’

Social Action and Research Centre Submission

In this submission, Anglicare has chosen to focus on two main issues: the need to incorporate more of a welfare focus into the youth justice system and the need for an integrated support system for young offenders and their families to underpin the legislation and ensure that it is implemented in line with its objectives. Anglicare’s response is shaped around a belief that the main functions of the youth justice system should be to act in the best interests of the young person, uphold the human rights of the young person and to support rehabilitation and reintegration.
