What do young people with an out-of-home care experience think about Youth Justice and community safety?

On January 25, 2019, the #WorthaSecondChance Youth Justice Campaign and the CREATE Foundation collaborated on a Kitchen Table Conversation to speak with young people with lived experience of the out of home care sector about their thoughts, ideas and suggestions on Youth Justice and community safety.

The Kitchen Table Conversation involved eight young people involved in CREATE’s Youth Advisory Group (YAG), aged 15-25. Some young people who attended on the night had experience of interacting with police, Youth Justice, or adult prisons. Others had experienced the incarceration of a parent. All young people who attended have been involved in the out-of-home care (OOHC) sector in Victoria.
