TACT is pleased to support the charity Article 39 in its bid to legally challenge the use of pain and unjustified restraint during children’s frightening journeys to and from secure children’s homes.
Escort custody officers are allowed to use force to make children follow orders. Shockingly, they have been authorised and trained to deliberately inflict pain on children as a form of restraint.
As a small charity, Article 39 does not have the funds to bring this vital case to court so they are seeking Crowd Justice funding.
