This paper presents key messages and calls for action about secure care from care experienced young people, most of whom were in secure care at the point that they talked about their lives and their care journeys. Their accounts were at the heart of the report Secure Care in Scotland: Looking Ahead (Gough, 2016) but we made a commitment to the young people we met with to share these accounts with all those who have influence and responsibilities towards young people who are in, and on the edges of, secure care. Much of this paper is therefore in their words.
