Abstract

In 2002, the Scottish Executive commissioned a three-year study involving a research team from the Universities of Stirling, Strathclyde and glasgow, aimed at developing an understanding of the use and effectiveness of secure accommodation in Scotland (Walker et al. 2006). This chapter aims to highlight relevant research, policy and service developments and to discuss relevant findings and implications from the research.
