Preventing children entering care in the first place

A high number of children under the age of 2 go into care, often because family members are affected by mental health issues, learning disabilities, substance abuse or domestic violence.

Organisations that provide and commission services focusing on these different areas will be working more closely together with families to try to prevent problems and ensure children are supported to stay at home, where safe and appropriate.
