November Briefings

National Evaluation of the Troubled Families Programme Final Synthesis Report published by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) on 17th October 2016
This briefing summarises the final synthesis report of the National Evaluation of the Troubled Families Programme. It sets out the background to the Troubled Families Programme, outlines the content of the report and considers the key findings in more detail and why the findings have occurred.

Harmful Sexual Behaviour
During the summer months two important guides were published to improve the quality of services to Young People with Harmful Sexual Behaviour from The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the NSPCC. The guides will help develop evidence based practice and assist in auditing and benchmarking services.

Gender Identity Issues
Issues around gender identity are coming to increasing public prominence, with a corresponding increase in the number of children and young people coming forward with issues relating to their gender development and identity.

Serious Case Review - Safeguarding Children from Dangerous Dogs
Dog attacks causing child fatalities are, fortunately, very rare in England. However, this issue has recently been highlighted both by the recent death of a child in the family home and by the publication of a Serious Case Review Overview Report. This policy briefing considers, in particular, the findings and recommendations from this Serious Case Review.
