A personal account of a young persons journey during a welfare stay at a Secure Children’s Home

A secure welfare placement is a placement route which is not taken lightly by a local authority as it entails depriving a young person of their liberty. When this decision is taken, a young person can be informed of the decision in different manners and, at the time a decision is made, it can be unknown to the young person what a placement within a secure children’s home will look like for them, or even how long they might reside there.
