New name for CYCJ

Date: 4th September 2020


Known since 2013 as the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice or “CYCJ” for short, “CYCJ” will now stand for the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice.

The decision aims to clarify that the organisation focuses on children, recognising the distinct legal and developmental status of all those under 18 years of age, and young people (those aged 18 to their mid-20s).
