Sexual orientation

A major concern for the Prison Service is how to manage an ageing prison population with age related health needs.

In terms of young people, the use of the criminal justice system to deal – ineffectively – with youth crime can be seriously criticised, as can the use of ASBOs in the past. Young black men and women in particular are drawn into the system in a disproportionate manner. There has been a fair amount of research on this (House of Commons, Youth Justice board etc) but some in-depth work on pathways to prison for young black and Asian men and women – often ignored – might be a useful contribution to developing alternative strategies.
