Safeguarding, supporting and educating young review

By on 07/11/2013 in News, Service Reviews

A Green Paper has been released containing details of the Safeguarding, supporting and educating young review.

This green paper updates the green paper on education services published earlier in the year and links it to the wider services we provide for children.

Birmingham is a city with one of the youngest populations in Europe, which means that our services for children and young people are particularly important.

Our vision for Birmingham is for a city which is fair, prosperous and democratic.  In practical terms for young people this includes a city where:
•    Children and young people are safe, especially the most vulnerable
•    All young people benefit from improved health and wellbeing
•    Children and families will not live in poverty
•    Young people will be in employment, training or education
•    Young people will get the qualifications they need for work
•    Young people will be engaged in local democracy, and have more influence on local decisions.
Our top priority, shared with partners through the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, is for children and young people in Birmingham to be safe from harm and abuse.

Most children and young people successfully navigate the journey to adulthood, with support from their families and public services such as schools and GPs.  However, some children and young people experience events and conditions along this journey that mean they need more support.  While this support can help, these individuals are at a greater risk than others of long-term unemployment, difficult social and emotional relationships and often criminality.
