Looks at the experience of the children and young people involved; summarises the relevant legislation (including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child); presents Home Office statistics; and offers recommendations to ensure that police, magistrates, local authorities and other professionals meet their obligations to protect the welfare and rights of all children and young people. Includes case studies.
