Vulnerable Adolescents Thematic Review - Croydon Local Safeguarding Children Board March 2019

Croydon Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) has published a thematic review based on the experiences of 60 vulnerable young people identified by local agencies.

Findings include:

  • early help and prevention is critical

  • greater recognition and response to children’s emotional health and wellbeing is needed

  • an integrated, whole system approach is needed across agencies, communities and families; schools need to be equipped to respond to the challenges presented by children with high risk behaviour and central to multi-agency service provision.
