Communication submitted in the First International Conference of Juvenile Justice "Juvenile Justice and the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency in a Globalized World". Salamanca 2004.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to address this important conference. It is a great pleasure to be here amongst so many people who are committed to finding a way forward in the world that ensures young people are given a fair deal. It is especially good to be able to think about young people who have been in custody, how we treat them when they are released and how we ensure that they are given a second chance as they make their way forward, (or not), in the world.

I wanted to say at the outset that I am not an academic criminologist and the organisation I represent approaches this from the perspective that what goes on in the criminal justice system is all of our business. We believe that as a society we can change the way we deal with crime. We do not see offenders as some strange group of others, evil, bad, inexplicable, fundamentally different, to be shut away. We do not think that matters should be left to the law enforcement agencies. We believe that citizens should be involved in the organisation and delivery of criminal justice services as volunteers.

During my talk I would like to do a number of things give you an idea of the political context and social mood that is currently affecting what is happening to young people in custody, some statistics about England and Wales and then some ideas about good practice in what is happening.
