A major review has been launched to examine why such a high proportion of children in the youth justice system are, or have been, in care. Less than 1% of children and young people are in the care of local authorities, yet 31% of boys and 61% of girls in custody aged 15 - 18 are, or have been, in care. “Local Authorities need to understand they not only have a legal responsibility to be a good parent to these young people, they have a moral responsibility also, because this is the one opportunity we have as a society to help these young people turn their lives around,” said Lord Laming, the crossbench peer who chairs the review. He said it was not just a question of putting a roof over a child’s head. “It’s about providing the child with security, stability that they may never have experienced and a sense of hope for the future.”
