This case study by CYCJ’s Claire Lightowler and Carole Dearie discusses secure care outcomes, legislation, policy and practice in Sweden, particularly highlighting similarities and differences to Scotland. It is based on a review of the literature, analysis of governmental data, a visit to a secure care unit for young girls and discussions with secure care staff and academics based in Sweden in October 2015.
