A new position has arisen for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Physical Health Practitioner to join the Healthcare Team that works within Lincolnshire Secure Unit in Sleaford.

Lincolnshire Secure Unit is a Secure Childrens home and provides secure accommodation for up to 12 young people between 10 and 18 years of age who may have experienced various forms of abuse, display a wide variety of associated trauma related behaviour(s) and who may be the subject of appropriate legal orders.
There are two types of placements – Youth Justice Placements and Welfare Placements. The Youth Justice Board (YJB) will place young people in the Unit who are either on remand or serving a sentence for criminal behaviour. Young people on a Welfare Placement are not sentenced but secure accommodation may be the best way to guarantee their safety and welfare or to prevent them from causing harm to other people.
The placements are made up of young people from a variety of backgrounds who can display difficult and challenging behaviour, symptomatic of a chaotic and sometimes abusive background.
