    Abstract

    This paper gives a brief overview of the current system of supporting young people who enter into secure care or custody in Scotland to reintegrate and transition back into their families and communities. It highlights recent developments and changes in policy, including the Whole System Approach. This paper asks why, with reductions in the number of young people in secure care and custody, we are still not getting reintegration right. It highlights what needs to be achieved to ensure progress in this area and concludes with recommendations for future work.
