Looked after children and young offenders
The Looked after Children and Youth Offending Health Team provides support and a high quality community based general health nursing service to:
- Looked After children and young people who are over statutory school age, who are not accessing school health services (out of education, in alternative education, further education or employment).
- Young people subject to Youth Offending Service / Team involvement or support.
It works in collaboration with partner agencies both voluntary and statutory to achieve good health outcomes for looked after children and children / young people subject to involvement with youth offending services; support is also provided to their carers and families.
Contact with the team will initially be co-ordinated by the relevant lead professional.
