Prison Reform Trust review report: In Care, Out of Trouble

The Prison Reform Trust’s independent review,¬†chaired by Lord Laming, published its report In Care, Out of Trouble, in June 2016.

This review was established to examine the reasons for, and how best to tackle, the over-representation of children in care, or with experience of care, in the criminal justice system in England and Wales.

The report outlines the significant findings about the number of children in custody that have spent time in care, and makes recommendations on how the life chances of children in care can be improved by protecting them from involvement in the criminal justice system.
