Secure Care Pathway and Standards – What, Why and How We Can Help

“These Standards are a starting point for further improvements in years to come.”

The Secure Care Pathway and Standards Scotland were launched on October 5, 2020, to improve the experiences of children and young people who are in, or on the edges of, secure care, leading to better and brighter outcomes.

One year on, the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) and partners held an open event to showcase how the Standards are transforming the secure care journey in Scotland. Speakers from the Scottish Government, CYCJ and local authorities discussed why the Standards matter, the journey so far and experiences of implementation. STARR – Scotland’s only curated space for care experienced people of all ages – also presented, announcing that they are now online and on Twitter @STARR_Secure.
