As part of its programme to end the criminalisation of children in residential care, the Howard League for Penal Reform has published the third in a series of briefings examining different aspects of the issue. The latest briefing, entitled ‘Hearts and heads’, looks at good practice in children’s homes and sets out a number of core principles that should be applied in all children’s homes to help protect children from unnecessary criminalisation.

Further details and links to the briefing and bibliography are provided on the Howard League website
