The event is not open to the public but you can follow the day via the hashtag #T2A on Twitter.
Catch22 is part of the Transition to Adulthood (T2A) Alliance, a coalition of organisations working to improve the life chances of young people in their transition to adulthood who are at risk of involvement in the criminal justice system.
Our work with T2A has focused on vulnerable young adults with multiple needs who are in the process of growing up into mature adults. Catch22 has led on the T2A policy campaign, holding a series of meetings with key policy makers; organising an international conference on the transition to adulthood and co-coordinating the T2A Alliance papers, Universities of Crime (February, 2009), A New Start: Young Adults in the Criminal Justice System (May, 2009) and the Young Adult Manifesto (November 2009).
Catch22 is currently evaluating the outcomes of the 3 T2A pilots based in London, Birmingham and West Mercia.
The project is supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust.
