Into the Breach: the enforcement of statutory orders in the youth justice system

This research report, commissioned from NCB, is the first piece of primary research into children who breach statutory orders. It features an analysis of existing data and learning from qualitative research with children, practitioners and magistrates. Some of the findings chime with common sense, but some are surprising—in some areas, for instance, every single ASBO given to 10 and 11 year olds was breached.
