Young people in New Zealand have some important things to say, they want to be heard on issues that are important to them. The Office of the Children’s Commissioner (the Office) and JustSpeak believe it is important to seek views of young people on policy areas that directly affect them. Therefore when the review of the Youth Offending Strategy, called the Youth Crime Action Plan (YCAP) was announced, JustSpeak approached the Office to partner on a consultation with young people. We spoke with 97 young people - many of whom had first-hand experience of the youth justice system in New Zealand, as well as those who hadn’t.
