Charter of Rights for young people in secure care

Australian Children’s Commissioners and Guardians (ACCG) today released a Model Charter of Rights for Children and Young People Detained in Youth Justice Facilities.

The model charter is based on international agreements to which Australia is a signatory, and is designed to provide children and young people in custody with an easy to understand guide to their rights, and what they are entitled to while in custody.

Further details are in the next edition of the Guardian’s Newsletter and will feature in a post in these pages in forthcoming weeks.
