Event description

Description

With the voices of children looked after and care leavers who have direct experience of criminal justice settings central to the discussion, this event, led by The Care Leavers’ Association (CLA) and with the support of academic partners, will re-visit the position and experience of care leavers within criminal justice settings.

Key note speakers will include:

  • John Drew CBE, formerly the Chief Executive of the Youth Justice Board and now a Senior Associate with the Prison Reform Trust will speak about in care and out of trouble, breaking the link between care and offending;
  • Claire Fitzpatrick, Criminologist at Lancaster University will speak on breaking the care and custody connection;
  • Darren Coyne, Project Manager at The CLA will outline innovative practice developments within justice settings, taking a multi-agency approach; and
  • Care leavers will deliver a key note address through film, with a focus on voice and influence, some of whom are settled in the community and others currently in custody

Identifying a number of issues which are out of scope in the current discussion, seeking to address the challenges of disrupting institutional pathways between the care and criminal justice systems, workshop sessions will address;

  • Visibility of care leavers in the criminal justice context; (in)visible identities and complexities of need

Facilitators

  • Paul Pandolfo, Programme Manager, Inspiring Change Manchester;
  • Helen Latham, Justice and Rehabilitation CRC Lead, Cheshire & Greater Manchester CRC; and
  • HMPPS Regional Care Leaver Champion


  • Taking care of young people: Between care and criminal justice settings

Facilitator

  • Kevin Wong, Associate Director, The Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University


  • The issues that present for criminalised adult care leavers across their life course

Facilitators

  • Sam Davey, Project Officer, The Care Leavers’ Association;
  • Lisa Duffy, Project Officer, The Care Leavers’ Association; and
  • Care Leaver Advocates, HMP Hatfield


  • Intersectional understanding of experiences of care

Facilitators

  • Mark Blake, Project Development Officer, BTEG
  • Becky Clarke, Senior Lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Leah MacKenzie, Project Officer, The Care Leavers' Association

This national event will be of interest to practitioners working with care leavers of all ages from both voluntary and statutory sectors, individuals who have experienced care and / or criminal justice settings, policy makers seeking to support change for these groups, organisations campaigning on these issues, academics and their students who want to contribute to the debate.
