Queensland locking up more children than any other state
We are failing our children
Queensland is winning the race that no one wants to – we are locking up more children than any other state*.
The current youth justice system does not adequately support young people to get their lives back on track and prevent further offending, and in many cases exacerbates the issue through outdated punitive practices.
Young people need support and safety to get their lives back on track – not further trauma.
Make a donation to YAC’s support services to help children break the cycle and turn their lives around.
