Secure Accommodation Order (SAO)
The Local Authority can apply for a Secure Accommodation Order (SAO) in relation to a child where the child has a history of absconding, is likely to abscond, and, if they do abscond, is likely to suffer significant harm or if they are kept in any other description of the accommodation, they are likely to injure themselves or other persons. Once this criteria is met, the court shall make the order.
