At Y24 we recognise the importance providing young people within our communities (including persistent offenders) with useful information on law & order, crime & punishment and how the Criminal Justice System works. This inevitably leads to a clearer understanding regarding Rights & Entitlements ranging from Police Powers of Stop & Search, Joint Enterprise, Lawful Arrest & Detention and Bail, as well as police station and court procedures to be expected to name but a few.
Due to our extensive links with many of London’s leading law firms, we are able to ensure that high quality legal advice & assistance is available for those in need of the same, not only with regards to criminal matters, but also for many other areas of law and this has gone a long way in encouraging confidence, positive thinking, self-control, self-discipline and self-improvement for an ever growing number of young people within our local communities.
