  • Video

In this section, we will look at trauma informed policing and how it represents a change in the way we work with young offenders, recognising and addressing their vulnerability as well as their criminal behaviour.

The video on the following page provides an overview of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how having a trauma informed approach can support young offenders.

Youth Justice legal centre summit (March 2021)

You will hear from leading experts from across the globe about their ideas for tools that can be used to confront discrimination in order to represent children better.

As in previous years, the YJLC Summit is an opportunity to bring together those who work so tirelessly in this undervalued sector, and to celebrate our community and our collective work. We hope to share knowledge, circulate innovation, and develop good practice by first identifying the bias, discrimination and fear children experience within the criminal justice system and then developing ways of tackling it. We hope that this year’s Summit will be one of many steps towards defeating discrimination.
