Secure Accommodation is only ever meant to be a temporary measure. It has to be kept under regular review. Our panel members ensure the criteria for secure accommodation is met and the young person’s wishes and feelings are considered.
Locking up a young person should not be undertaken lightly and should be stopped as soon as it is no longer necessary. The Secure Accommodate Review panel has to be established within a month of the young person entering secure accommodation and the decision to detain is reviewed within three months and thereafter, every six months. We provide Independent Persons to sit as part of the panel and ensure the criteria for secure accommodation continues to be met and the child’s wishes and feelings are ascertained and taken into account.
