Title:

Scottish Government: A Pathway of care for vulnerable families 0 to 3

 

Description:

All children and young people have the right to be cared for, protected from harm and abuse and to grow up in a safe environment in which their rights are respected and their needs met. A large number of children in Scotland, however, are born into, and live within, families that can be considered “vulnerable”.

A continuum of support from universal provision (the universal pathway) through to specialist targeted provision most effectively meets the needs of children and families at different ages and stages across the life course. A variety of different services and interventions are required to address the often very different needs of families and the multiple risk factors that impact on children’s outcomes. The ultimate aim for services is to support children and families to remain within the universal pathway whenever  possible, bringing in targeted or specialist provision where appropriate.
