Therapeutic interventions helping young people who display sexually harmful behaviour: Secure Care Centre SCO040500

Publication year:
Place of publication:

SC040500 is a secure children’s home registered with Ofsted and approved by the Secretary of State to provide secure care and accommodation. It is managed by Salford City Council and is registered to provide care and education for up to 20 young people (all male). This good practice example describes an intensive programme designed to work with young people who display sexually harmful behaviour, which this secure care centre runs. The centre believes that this is vital to providing a safe, secure and nurturing environment, where the previous sexually harmful behaviour is skilfully addressed and the potential for reoffending is reduced. The centre also supports young people through the resettlement process, working with them and their families as necessary. Each young person has a ‘Goodlife Plan’, which is devised at the centre and continues as an effective tool in the community. Staff recommend appropriate ongoing therapeutic and supportive work from professionals in the community. (Edited publisher abstract)
