Criminal Justice System explained

The Criminal Justice System is very complex and many people with learning disabilities/autism, their families and professionals find it incomprehensible. We are sometimes contacted by people with learning disabilities and/or autism, their families and their professionals for help in understanding where they are in the system, and how to get help. We hope these guides will assist everyone in this situation and we welcome your feedback on the guides, including suggestions for how to improve them or add to them (email Emily).
