What children and young people in juvenile justice centres have to say

Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP)


All children and young people have the right to have their voices heard when decisions are made that affect their lives; including children and young people in detention. This report details the findings from ACYP consultations with children and young people in Juvenile Justice Centres between 2015 and 2019. ACYP consulted with young people in detention to inform the development of the State’s first Strategic Plan for Children and Young People. Since then, the Advocate and ACYP staff have made at least two visits to every Juvenile Justice Centre (JJC) in NSW to hear from children and young people. In total, between May 2015 and July 2019 ACYP listened to 260 children and young people in JJCs aged 11-21 years; 56 were female and 204 were male.
