Two new publications if you have an interest in child protection issues:
Smoking, Drinking and Drug use Among Young People in England in 2009 is a new report from the NHS with detailed information and statistics about children's use of harmful substances.
Safeguarding Young People: Responding to Young People Aged 11 to 17 Who are Maltreated is a joint publication from the Children's Society, the NSPCC and the University of York. The report found that the needs of 11-17 year olds were not always met by child protection processes which are more geared to protecting younger children.
To get regular updates on child protection issues, you can sign up to the NSPCC Caspar service; once you have set up an email alert, you will receive a weekly email with details of news, research and events in this area.
