As part of a year-long inquiry, the APPG on Women in the Penal System has recently published its findings in two briefing papers; “Keeping Girls Out of the Penal System” and “Inquiry on Girls: From Courts to Custody”.
This special symposium provides a timely opportunity for local authorities, criminal justice and legal practitioners, police and probation services and welfare services to:
• Discuss the progress made in implementing the APPG recommendations on women in the penal system
• Examine how the current challenges of girls in the penal system can be met and the effect of reform in the sector
• Explore the responses of magistrates, police and welfare services in ensuring the needs of vulnerable girls are distinguished from the risk of offending
I am pleased to advise you that we offer a 20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 28th March 2013. For further details about the symposium, please refer to the event brochure. Book online here.
