SHINE for Kids CEO in news about QLD watch house laws

SHINE for Kids CEO Julie Hourigan has been featured in news about the Queensland government’s decision to allow children to be detained in adult watch houses.

“We completely agree that Queenslanders need to feel safe, and that youth crime is a very serious issue in the state that needs urgent attention. The government needs to address community safety with interventions that work, not just get headlines.

“We also argue that locking young children up is not the only way to combat the issue – and it often leads to poorer outcomes in the longterm for these kids and community safety.”
