As well as offering insights into offending and sentencing, the data collated from this Q1 Snapshot study highlights the level of adversity and trauma young people in detention have experienced, including the loss of parents, neglect and abuse, and multiple care placements. The data also demonstrates the multiple overlapping risks and needs young people in detention have, and the many professionals and services they have been involved with. By understanding the origins, needs and trajectories of these young people, it is hoped that the necessary services and interventions can assist them to move on from their offending behaviour.
