Intensive support and monitoring service (ISMS): ISMS and beyond - a snapshot of the service in the last two years and a longer term follow up

ISMS was launched in Glasgow, and six other Phase One sites, in April 2005, in order to provide a direct community-based alternative to secure care.

The purpose of this report is twofold. Firstly it comprises a short examination of the service, covering the period from 1st April 2007 to 31st March 2009 (following on from where the previous evaluation left off).

Secondly the report revisits the original cohort of young people who were subject to an ISMS order during the first two years of operation (1st April 2005 to 31st March 2007), in order to establish the longer-term outcomes for young people since leaving the service.

The report should be read in conjunction with the earlier evaluations, particularly for readers interested in more about the background and detail of the ISMS service in Glasgow.
