Vulnerability in childhood: a public health informed approach

A public health informed approach looks at the factors for individual children, their families and the communities in which they live that make it more or less likely that vulnerability and adversity in childhood has a lasting impact on their lives.

This holistic, multi-agency approach addresses inequality and the broader causes of vulnerability which might otherwise be overlooked.

A narrative report about improving health outcomes for vulnerable children and young people has been developed for each upper-tier local authority.

The reports summarise data and evidence at local authority level to support decision-making and prioritisation.
