Two sub-groups are part of this group. The first focusses on alternatives to secure care and custody, currently seeking out good practice examples from across Scotland to develop our understanding of what this work looks like, recognise themes and principles that could be promoted to reduce the use of secure care and custody, safely scaffolding children and their support networks in the community. The second sub-group focuses on EEI in greater detail, ensuring this is rights-respecting, promoting children and family involvement throughout, and supporting consistency of approach and embedding nationally.
