Abstract

Healthcare services and other organisations that work with children and young people have a responsibility to keep them safe. 

Vulnerable children and young people in England are not getting the help they need when and where they need it. The risks of harm to many children are revealed with the right questions and support.

In our review of 50 local area inspections, we found health and social care services failing to adequately support young people. We also found examples of innovative and outstanding care.
