BAME children and young people in custody

The Justice Committee have launched an inquiry into children and young people in custody.

The inquiry will look at how the young estate population has changed, whether the secure estate is a fit and proper place to hold children, as well as arrangements for resettlement and rehabilitation.

The Committee is particularly interested in hearing about the experience of black, Asian and minority ethnic children and young people across the system. The deadline to respond to the inquiry is 1st October 2019.
