The Commission on Young Lives has published a new report looking at the relationship between family resilience and support and the risks of exploitation.
For most teenagers, including those taken into care, their family and extended family is going to be an important ongoing aspect of their lives. It is something that could, with better help, provide the stability and support needed to progress. That is why our first report argued for new and creative models of long- term wrap around support for teenagers and their families – including shared care with families, kinship care and wider community support – to prevent problems escalating but also for intense interventions that respond when things reach crisis point. These specific offers for teenagers and their families need to be at the heart of a reformed care system.Anne Longfield, Chair of Commission on Young Lives
