The Sydney Morning Herald cover Impact 100 Sydney 2021 win

SHINE for Kids’s April Long was also interviewed and said, “eighty incarcerated young people will now have someone walk beside them, believe in them and stand up for them.”

Two thirds of 10-17 year-olds released from juvenile justice return to prison within six months and 80% return within 12 months. There is a better solution. “10 year-olds don’t belong in prisons … they belong in supported families and communities.” – April Long
