Young Citizens – Early Intervention:

Through funding from Nottingham City Council’s Early Intervention Strategy, NCCL has now completed the ‘Young Citizens’ project to Nottingham City primary schools.

The project was open to all Year 5 pupils, who were invited to take part in a free day of citizenship activities at the Galleries of Justice Museum . The visit, focused on the contemporary criminal justice system, revolves around the story of an 11-year old boy who steals a mobile phone and is subsequently arrested and taken to court. Through taking part in object handling, role play, a mock arrest and a youth trial in one of our courtrooms, pupils gained an improved understanding of the consequences of anti-social behaviour, an idea of how crime affects people, and a better understanding of the current legal and criminal justice systems.
