Challenge of Juvenile Youth:

This has often led to the arrest of youth and endless trials which hold up their educational and personal development.

I believe homeless 16 & 17 year olds in Plymouth have a problem getting legal representation in the city to challenge the Local Authority (Children's Social Care) in relation to their duties under the Children Act 1989

There is no free help (counselling) etc when children desperately need it. CAMHS etc are over stretched and can only take on the severest of cases but we need to protect children at the outset, not once they've already attempted suicide numerous times!

I'm signing because there is a lack of support for young people who are homeless but working full time.

Young people are significantly and disproportionately affected when cuts are made to government services such as the provision of advice and support services. I believe the current services available are insufficient and risk leaving many behind, the current system must be better funded and so helped to improve.

I understand, and value, the voices of young people. Often they see situations differently because they have a different level of emotional involvement

the system needs to move with the times, its not easy in this day and age being a young person and nobody should be ignored ! Everybody has rights and deserves to be heard no matter what age they are ! Better rights for young people = a brighter and stronger future for our society !

I'm signing because I feel it is important to educate young people about their rights and about the laws that protect them as there is a lack of understanding in this field. Law should be taught to everyone as a basic right.
