Knowsley’s priorities: Children and families

by Comms Team

The Knowsley Partnership is joining up services to provide the support that individuals and families need.

This priority within the Strategy for Knowsley sets out to achieve the following by 2020:

  • Fewer repeat referrals for domestic abuse and neglect;
  • A reduction in the number of children in need;
  • Fewer 0-17 year olds who are looked after in foster homes or residential care;
  • More children receiving support to prevent sexual and criminal exploitation;
  • Fewer children and families living in poverty; and
