Youth criminal records report published
Today we’ve launched new research on the impact of criminal records acquired in childhood and early adulthood.
The report shows that hundreds of thousands of people are being affected every year, and often many decades later, because of mistakes they made when they were children or young adults. In the last 5 years alone, over 2.25 million youth criminal records were disclosed on standard/enhanced checks by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) that were over 15 years old.
The report can be downloaded: A life sentence for young people (Unlock, May 2018)
A summary of the report can be: Summary – A life sentence for young people (Unlock, May 2018)
