First published in 1998, this guide aims to help children and young people understand why they have been placed in secure accommodation and what to expect while they are there.

Concise and easy to read, Taking Liberty answers some of the questions children and young people often ask before, during and after admission to secure accommodation, such as will I be able to wear my own clothes, will I be able to go to school, will I have to share a bedroom, and will I get pocket money?

This e-book also comes with a list of useful words and organisations.
