Remand to Local Authority Accommodation

Since 3 December 2012, all children remanded other than on bail can only be dealt with by way of a Remand to Local Authority Accommodation or a Remand to Youth Detention Accommodation, under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012.

Local Authority Accommodation means any accommodation which is provided by or on behalf of a local authority. It has a wide definition and can include the homes of relatives.
