We are currently recruiting young adults aged 16-25 to join a national panel and become Young Advisors on the Criminal Justice System. This initiative is supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust as part of its T2A initiative.

The Young Advisors project is aimed at young adults aged 16-25 years with personal experience of the criminal justice system – including policing and arrest, youth offending, courts and custody. We’re looking for a diverse group of young people from different backgrounds and life experiences.

This is brilliant leadership opportunity for young adults who wish to develop their skills and experience, and make a positive difference. Young Advisors will travel to events in London (expenses paid) to work with decision-makers and experts. They will also play an important role in helping to gather the opinions of other young adults about the justice system. 

All the documents needed to apply for this opportunity are available via the links below. We’ve tried to make this simple and accessible for everyone. We would very much appreciate it if you could encourage any young person who you feel would benefit from this experience to apply, and support them to fill out the application if needed.
