Acknowledging the significant role that accommodation within secure care plays in supporting children who face, take or make a high risk of harm, - and therefore experience extreme vulnerabilities, needs and risks - this study attempts to support practitioners and policy makers to better understand the lives of the children in question. Through the use of a census, a wealth of data has been captured which outlines the profile of children resident within the five secure units in Scotland on one day in 2018.
