The Howard League have published two documents in relation to children in Care Homes, that are relevant:


The Criminal Care: Children’s Homes are Criminalising Children (2016), which provides some data analysis around the number of children in care and the extent of their criminalisation.


The Ending the Criminalisation of Children in Residential Care (2017) which is the first of a series of briefing, that will be published alongside a programme of research and campaign work.
