Hassockfield Secure Training Centre
Hassockfield Secure Training Centre (STC) in County Durham cares for up to 58 males and females aged between 12 and 17 who are either awaiting trial or serving sentences. The contract was awarded in 1999 running under a 15 year private finance initiative with the Youth Justice Board of England and Wales.
The training centre looks after some of the most damaged and difficult young people in the country. All young people are under regular observation and are provided with an identified key worker and case manager (social worker). While in our care they are offered full health screening, individual treatment programmes, and a minimum of 25 hours of education per week. All our staff are trained in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention, to build relationships with and encourage young people to improve their coping strategies in times of stress and risk.
