We are carrying out further work about how a series of measures designed to tackle antisocial behaviour are affecting young adults, as well as evaluating different enforcement approaches.
Our latest project, funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, is now underway. It will build on the findings from the project on young adults and antisocial behaviour measures we completed last year, which established the extent of the use of three antisocial behaviour (ASB) tools to sanction young adults in England and Wales.
The Centre's Research Analyst, Matt Ford, discusses the findings of our new report on anti-social behaviour powers and young adults.
This data briefing shows how three key antisocial behaviour powers are being used to sanction young adults (18 to 25 year olds) in England and Wales.
This briefing analyses practitioners' accounts of how they are using three key antisocial behaviour measures to sanction adults (18-25 year olds) in England and Wales.

Helen Mills casts a critical eye over the latest proposals from the Ministry of Justice to reorganise the young adult and women's prison estate.
Richard Garside summarises the Centre's recently published pamphlet on young adults: From criminal justice to social justice.
Community sentences need to be more responsive to the needs of young adult offenders, according to a report published today by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies.
The report, which examines the use of the new Community Order and Suspended Sentence Order for adults aged between 18 and 24 found that there is a heavy reliance on unpaid work programmes and much less use of education, training and employment programmes and substance misuse programmes despite the fact that young adults have distinct needs in these areas.
