Detention Placement Plan

Detention Placement Plans were introduced with effect from 19 April 2013, by the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013. They apply where a child/young person is remanded by a court to Youth Detention Accommodation

Where the child/young person was Looked After immediately before being remanded, the Detention Placement Plan will replace the Placement Plan.

Where the child/young person was not Looked After immediately before being remanded, a Detention Placement Plan must be prepared instead of a Care Plan/ Placement Plan.

A Detention Placement Plan must be prepared within 10 working days of the remand.
