Rehabilitation: Lincolnshire

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 12 June 2009, Official Report, columns 1069-70W, and 1434W, on rehabilitation: Lincolnshire, where the 35 residential places are located. (284146)

The available beds, along with details of the support offered, are set out in the following table. These places represent only a small part of residential provision that can be accessed for young people with complex needs, where substance misuse is one factor. Local authority commissioners also meet young people's needs through a combination of fostering or children's home placements and specialist substance misuse community based services. This will often allow young people to be supported in an environment closer to their own community.
