Responding to Offending in Residential Childcare - Next steps project

Year: 2018
Topic: Residential care
Author: CYCJ, Staf

CYCJ (Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice) and Staf (Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum) built upon our previous research into offending and residential childcare Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Responses to Offending in Residential Childcare. Focusing on developing an understanding of, and influencing, local practice in four children's houses from across three geographical areas., this report highlights the recognisable achievements made and learning gained for practice with children involved in offending in residential childcare, as well as examining the project design.

The report has a number of implications and conclusions for practitioners involved in residential childcare practice or working with young people involved in offending behaviour.
