Welfare Secure Placement Unit

Welfare secure placement unit

In the summer of 2016 Hampshire County Council received grant funded by the DfE to run an interim unit to co-ordinate referrals for welfare placements in secure children’s homes across England. The staff team monitors capacity in the system daily and works closely with the Youth Justice Board (YJB) to this end - the YJB oversees justice placements in secure children’s homes.

The unit operates Monday to Thursday from 08:30 to 17:00 and on Fridays from 08:30 – 19:00 (out of hours cover is provided).

Further information about the unit can be found here.
