Secure Accommodation key trends
Last update March 2017
There were 90 secure places available in five secure units excluding emergency beds on 31 July 2016. There were an additional 6 beds available across these units for emergency and respite use – these would only be used if required and on a very short-term basis.
There was an overall increase in the average bed occupation during the year, but this has been caused by a doubling of the number of placements from outside Scotland. Accounting for placements from Scottish local authorities, average occupation has fallen.
