Creating a rights-respecting guide for children in conflict with the law

The Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) has published a guide to Scotland’s Whole System Approach, aimed at supporting children to understand what their rights are and what supports are available, when they have come into conflict with the law.

‘Whole System Approach: A guide for children and young people’ was created in collaboration with young people who have had contact with justice systems, and gone through the various stages of the Whole System Approach (WSA).

Through the process of speaking to other children and young people who had experience of the various stages of the WSA, Marie, Dale and Jason have created an accessible resource which highlights some of the important information that they believed children and young people should be aware of when coming into contact with the justice systems.

The content explains what children and young people can expect at every stage of the process.

Information is also provided, which explains the meaning of words used. Find out more.
