In partnership with The Alliance for Youth Justice the ‘Young Women’s Justice Project’ is part of our ‘Girls Speak’ campaign. Over the last two years, we have engaged with young women (17-25), front-line practitioners and other experts, with the aim of:
Building a strong and credible evidence base about the needs of girls and young women in contact with the criminal justice system;
Influencing government policy and strategies to take account of younger women, with a focus on Black, Asian and minoritised and care experienced girls and young women;
Enabling the development of effective practice through more gender and age-informed policy;
Empowering girls and young women as advocates to safely share their experiences and use their voices to make change.
