Clinks and RECOOP submission to the Justice Select Committee’s enquiry into the ageing prison population
Older people are the fastest growing age group in the prison population. There are triple the number of people aged 60 and over in prison than there were 16 years ago. This response details a range of issues facing older people in prison and gives recommendations for how the criminal justice system can adapt to meet their needs.
This is a joint response by Clinks, EQUAL and Barrow Cadbury Trust. Our response specifically focuses on the experience and outcomes of BAME children in the youth justice system.
Clinks welcomes this chance to identify opportunities to strengthen HMIP's Expectations for Women and also to ensure the revised criteria reflect the changes that have occurred in government policy over the last five years.
