Looked-after children and young people guidance published

NICE published public health guidance on the care of looked-after children and young people on the 19th October.  The evidence reviews for this guidance were produced by ScHARR’s Public Health Collaborating Centre, with input from Jim Chilcott, Roy Jones, Louise Guillaume and Diana Papaioannou from HEDS.  Five inter-connecting reviews were produced, culminating in a cost-effectiveness model of support services for transition to adulthood/leaving care on the adult outcomes.
