Youth Justice: The Need For Visionary Change By Lord Ramsbotham

General Sir David John Ramsbotham, Baron Ramsbotham GCB CBE, an Old Haileyburian, is a retired British Army officer, who later served as Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons. He was awarded a life peerage in 2005, and now sits on the cross benches of the House of Lords. He is a member of the Steering Group of Secure Foundation and wrote a book called 'Prisongate, The shocking State of Britain's Prisons and the Need for Visionary Change'

The Attlee Foundation works for social justice for disadvantaged communities and young people, in keeping with the values and work of Clement Attlee. By researching practical solutions to strengthen community involvement and supporting local people to influence decisions that affect their lives, we aim to raise local communities’ aspirations and life chances.

The need for us to influence thinking on social policy matters and deliver practical projects has never been greater. Young people, in particular, are adversely affected by the changed economic circumstances. One in four of those aged under 25 are likely to be unemployed for a lengthy period. Our youth programme is aiming to handle these challenges, as well as working on preventative solutions through our play and community work.
