This article is based on a wider PhD study examining the issue of coping on remand. The research used court observation and semi-structured interviews conducted with young prisoners aged 16 to 21 years in remand custody. The findings indicate that young people often end up in remand custody as a result of noncompliance with bail. Arising from the research, the case is made that the operation of bail support and supervision schemes may benefit these young people greatly.
