Children & Young People Services

We work with children in need, to make sure they get the right help to meet their potential.

Children might be in need because:

  • they're not likely to meet their full potential of health and development, unless they have help from the local authority
  • they have disabilities, which could be physical or learning disabilities or both.

We work together with other organisations to plan and run services.

In all our work with children, we make sure that the welfare of the child is paramount. We also believe that each child has the right to be treated as a unique individual, and has the right to express opinions and to make choices. Children are usually best cared for in their own homes by their own families. They also have a right to be protected from harm.
