If you have been in trouble with the law then you are not alone as many young people find themselves falling into trouble in their early teens. It is important that you understand the law and where you fit in, so that you can take responsibility for your actions and change your behaviour.
A lot of young people think that as they are under 18 it is their parents/carers who will be punished for something they’ve done wrong. This is not always the case.

The thought of being locked out of one’s home and having nowhere to go is pretty scary. It’s even worse during all the cold weather we’ve been having.
People find it easy to ignore those who sleep rough on the streets, touting the passers-by for spare change. Often they think these people are responsible for their situation or if they are given money they will just abuse it, spending it on drugs or alcohol rather than food and shelter.
