Details

Young adults make up a significant subgroup of the prison population or serving sentences in the community. This Better Outcomes document summarises how young adults differ to older adults and examines maturity, and how this is relevant to understanding the young adult population. The report then synthesises the evidence to identify six priority needs for young adult men, and provides guidance on the most effective or promising ways of addressing each of these.
