Health and wellbeing

Looked after children are more likely to be disruptive or 'difficult', they are more prone to risk-taking behaviour and substance abuse, and are more likely to self-harm, attempt suicide or even take their own lives.

We believe it's critical to nurture and support the long-term physical and emotional health and wellbeing of looked after children, from early years right into adult life. By working collectively to provide consistent care models which put the child's needs at the heart of our systems, we believe we can ensure a brighter, more emotionally resilient future for these vulnerable young people.
