This secure care centre delivers an intensive programme designed to work with young people who display sexually harmful behaviour. The centre believes that this is vital to providing a safe, secure and nurturing environment, where the previous sexually harmful behaviour is skilfully addressed and the potential for reoffending is reduced. The centre also supports young people through the resettlement process, working with them and their families as necessary
