We’re tremendously proud of our achievements over the past year. As this report clearly shows, we’re continuing to make a difference to millions of children in the UK who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn.
Our report focuses on the evaluation of our work on our five core thematic areas: young people affected by child sexual exploitation, mental and emotional health, going missing, substance misuse, and young people who are affected by issues related to being in care or transitioning out of care.
