Children in custody

HM Inspectorate of Prisons and the Youth Justice Board have published a report looking at the experiences of 12 -18 year olds held in secure training centres (STCs) and young offender institutions (YOIs) in England and Wales for 2017/18.

Findings from the 686 responses to a survey sent to all children in STCs or YOIs in England and Wales include: 56% of children and young people in STCs and 50% in YOIs reported that they had been physically restrained; and 30% in STCs reported being victimised by other children and young people by being shouted at through windows.
