Introduction

The Pathway and Standards Scotland provide all practitioners supporting children who are in or on the edge of secure care with clearer expectations that will improve practice. "It is a significant achievement that the standards have been co-produced with the input of secure care experienced young people at each stage of their development…"[this] should ensure that there is a positive impact on the experience of young people on their journey" (Stakeholder).

The Pathway and Standards set out what all children in or on the edges of secure care in Scotland should expect across the continuum of intensive supports and services. The Pathway and Standards provide a framework for ensuring the rights of children and young people are respected and improving experiences and outcomes for children who are experiencing extreme vulnerabilities, needs and risks in their lives.
