To make our report ‘Rights Respecting? Scotland’s approach to children in conflict with the law’ accessible to a younger audience, we have designed a child friendly version. This aims to give children and young people an understanding of the issues around Scotland’s youth justice system.
In this report you will read a lot about the things that are wrong at the moment. You will also read that we have ideas about what needs to change, so that we respect the rights of children when they are in conflict with the law.
You can access the report in full, or download the five sections separately:
This report is based on ‘Rights Respecting? Scotland’s approach to children in conflict with the law’ written by Claire Lightowler. Colin Morrison of TASC (Scotland) Ltd turned Claire’s ideas into this report for children and young people. Gary Morrison did the design work, and Sarah Ahmad created the graphics throughout.
Thank you to the young people of Youth Justice Voices, who took time to give us their views on this report.
