Abstract

In 2005, Includem commissioned a two-year evaluation of its Intensive Support Services. Some of these had a Movement Restriction Condition, or ‘tag’ (ISMS) and some did not (ISS). The Anti-Social Behaviour etc (Scotland) Act 2004 introduced Intensive Support and Monitoring Services (ISMS) in Scotland in 2005 as part of a disposal to be used by children’s hearings in circumstances that would otherwise warrant placement in secure accommodation. Young persons would be subject to a movement restriction condition (MRC) and at the same time receive Intensive Support Services for up to 3 months (renewable for 3 months).
