Children and young people

In 2014, the Children and Young People’s Partnership commissioned the council’s strategic intelligence team to undertake a deep dive study into the needs and aspirations of children and young people in Herefordshire. The report reveals the findings of the research investigation based on evidence of need in the county. The challenge for Herefordshire, together with its strategic partners in the independent and voluntary sectors, is to realise children and young people’s potential by ensuring that vulnerable children and young people get the right support at the right time.
