Secure children’s home scheme aims to help young people ‘transition’ back into the community

An innovative new scheme could be launched at a secure children’s home to help young people transition back into their communities.

Aycliffe Secure Centre, which is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, provides a secure and caring home for young people between the ages of 10 and 18 with a range of complex problems and vulnerabilities. This includes young people in County Durham sentenced or remanded by the Youth Custody Service and those accommodated for their own safety.

One of the planned centre’s priorities includes supporting every child and young person to “transition and re-settle successfully into their community.”
