Our Secure Accommodation provides vulnerable young people, aged 10 to 18 a safe environment where they can live, learn and laugh!

Our secure homes are named Beauly, Carron and Deveron, and accommodate up to six young people per house. It is a place of safety for young people who find themselves in difficult or distressing circumstances. Each young person is supported, throughout their time here, by a group of experienced professionals who constitute the ‘Team Around the Child’. This team works closely with the young person to provide support and to help reduce anxiety or uncertainty that the young person may be experiencing.

Rossie mostly looks after young people who have been placed with us through the Children’s Hearings or Family Court. However we also care for young people placed with us through the courts. The Secure houses provide high levels of structure and assistance to all young people.

How much support do our young people receive?

Before young people arrive at Rossie, we ensure we have all the information we need related to their education, care and health needs, so we can provide the right care from the start.

Who we help

I view my time in Secure as a rebirth. I was given the chance to let go of all my responsibilities from home and focus on myself. To have been given the opportunity to learn how to live my life again is very much appreciated
