The gap between those who are doing well and those who are doing less well has been closed by targeting care and support to those children , young people and their families with the most pressing needs.

We continually strive to develop and transform all services that children and young people may access , to enable one and all the best possible opportunities for excellent health and wellbeing, throughout their lives and particularly as they make transition to adulthood.

Too many children young people and their families do not have these good opportunities and are worried about their futures.
