Unprecedented media reaction to Justice Select Committee report on Young Adult Offenders


There was widespread positive press coverage yesterday of the House of Commons Justice Committee’s report on young adult offenders, which called for a distinct approach for 18-25 year olds throughout the criminal justice system, and more generally T2A’s programme of work.

This is a landmark moment for the young adult agenda, and also major recognition of all the work that professionals, researchers and campaigners have contributed to its pursuit.

What is particularly encouraging is that the media were very interested in the detail of the report, especially the neuroscience that underpinned it.

T2A will now be pursuing an action plan to ensure that we maintain and build on this positive momentum.
