Written evidence to Women and Equalities Committee Inquiry on the unequal impact of Covid-19
Just for Kids Law, CRAE and YJLC's submission to the Women and Equalities Committee Inquiry on the unequal impact of Covid-19 is informed by our work monitoring implementation of the CRC in England, as well as our direct advocacy and legal case work with children and young people. We share the Committee's concerns about the impact that Government measures to tackle Covid-19 is having on people with protected characteristics and welcome this inquiry. We are particularly concerned about children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) children and young people coming into contact with the police and criminal justice system - some of the most vulnerable in our society.
