Together with Iriss, CYCJ has relaunched their interactive resource, ‘The child’s journey: A guide to the Scottish justice system’ which is aimed at helping children, young people, families and also practitioners to better understand the Scottish justice system when a child is in conflict with the law.

The resource has been renamed and updated for 2021 to reflect Scotland’s increased focus on children’s rights and child-centred practices.
