National Youth Justice Conference 2018

This popular event brought delegates together at Stirling University on June 20 and 21 for two days of speakers and workshops, and the chance to hear the latest research, share best practice and reflect on the views of young people who have experienced the youth and criminal justice system. This year, we joined up with education colleagues as we looked at the transitions our young people have to make on their journeys through life.
