Ofsted reports on the protection of vulnerable babies and young people
26 Oct 2011
Today, Ofsted publishes two reports which highlight the vulnerability of teenagers in the child protection system. One describes the success that some local authorities have had in improving outcomes for these young people, by supporting them to remain living successfully at home rather than bringing them into care. The other highlights key practice issues in the protection of young people as well as babies under one, who remain one of most vulnerable groups of all.
Listen to John Goldup, Director of Development and Strategy, in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live about the two reports which concludes what lessons can be learnt for teenagers and babies from serious case reviews, and outlines how some authorities are successfully preventing teenagers going into care: BBC iPlayer.
