Childhood Vulnerability in England – Report

The Children’s Commissioner for England has published a report looking at the scale of child vulnerability in England.

The report’s findings include:

  • 723,000 children currently receive statutory support or intervention
  • 2.3 million children are living with risk because of a vulnerable family background – more than a third of these children (829,000) are ‘invisible’ (not known to services) and aren’t getting any support
