www.southwark.gov.uk Children and young people’s health Taking the ‘Best start’ priority, there are five key areas: –Provide high-quality advice and support services in the early years, and tackle inequalities in life chances for mothers, babies and toddlers –Help parents to raise their children successfully, particularly in troubled or neglectful families, and continue to keep children and young people safe and in stable homes –Keep more children physically and mentally healthy, a healthy weight and doing well in school –Support more young people to succeed into adulthood and education or employment –Identify and divert more vulnerable adolescents from risky behaviours or unhealthy choices, including unsafe sex or relationships, and involvement in crime Vulnerable groups including child protection, looked after children, SEN and disability fall within the third priority
