JSNA - Start Well (Children and Young People)



Also known as: Facts and Figures


Service Description: The health and wellbeing of children on the Isle of Wight is a priority for all. The wider children’s workforce as well as communities and families endeavour to work together to safeguard children and give them the best start in life.

As defined in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (2013) we endeavour to:
Protect children from maltreatment
Prevent impairment of children’s health or development
Ensure children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
Take action to ensure all children have the best outcome

Certain factors can increase the vulnerability of children such as living in poverty or in care, having a disability or caring responsibilities. Factors such as these can increase the risk of poor health and lower educational attainment and poverty in adult life. It is important that communities, families and services work together to safeguard these young people.
