[052.18] Judge condemns ‘unacceptable’ lack of secure accommodation for children

Maybe…

… if everyone would be more careful about the children and young people who are sent for this kind of accommodation;

… if the secure accommodations were only for those who really need it;

… if we would be more strict and analyze the pros and cons of these situations;

… if we would be more coherent and we would take into account if there really is any learning in the secure accommodations that could not be obtained in other contexts;

… maybe there would be more vacancies and more space for those who really need it.

A family court judge has condemned a lack of secure accommodation after she was left with nowhere to send a convicted 16-year-old who desperately needs to escape gang involvement in “county lines” drug dealing.
