What children and young people are saying about youth justice

In 2016 the Commissioner for Children and Young People asked 92 young people who had been in the youth justice system in WA about:

  • the things that had got them in trouble
  • how they avoid getting in trouble
  • what help they need to stay out of trouble

You can see what they said in the report below.

The Commissioner has also created a longer report which outlines the young people's views in more detail. This report is available here
