    On the bad side, you can now:

    Receive a community sentence called a Youth Rehabilitation Order
    Be detained in custody (but not in an adult jail) under a Detention and Training Order - the maximum term is two years but some of this will be served under supervision in the community

    Good side though, you can :

    Move out of the family home (social services may apply for a care order)
    Rent accomodation (but an adult guarantor is required)
    Get married (with parental consent)

    Lesiure wise you can:
    Drink beer or cider with a meal in a pub or hotel (but can't be the person buying it)
    Do the football pools and play the National Lottery
    Buy Premium Bonds
    Fly a glider
    Order your own passport

    Other stuff, you can:
    Get free full-time education (at school, sixth form college and city technology college)
    Access school records
    Claim benefits and get a National Insurance number (this should be sent automatically a few weeks before their 16th birthday)Join the armed forces (with consent of parents or carers)
    Work as a street trader and/or sell scrap metal
    Earn the minimum wage
    Claim child tax credit if responsible for at least one child
    Invest in a cash ISA
