Aycliffe Secure Centre

We provide a secure home for both male and female young people aged 10 to 18 who have been admitted to our home through the courts or by councils on a welfare basis (known as Section 25). This may be because they are a risk to themselves or others, or because there is a concern about their involvement with criminal activities.
