This report explores the experience of vulnerable children and young people in terms of their contact with statutory services – essentially children’s social care (social care), and mental health provision (for example, primary care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)), and Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS). It goes on to examine the interface between the voluntary sector and statutory services in relation to the former working with vulnerable children and young people, and their efforts to secure support for them from the latter.

This report does not claim to be a definitive study of child protection and statutory mental health services in England. However, it does shed light on profoundly worrying systemic issues within the statutory services that ought to care for, protect and/or support vulnerable children and young people.
