Looked After Children

Children and young people come into care following often traumatic experiences including abuse, and neglect, as unaccompanied asylum seekers, due to loss of main carers through illness, death or imprisonment, which make them more vulnerable to:

  • Emotional and Mental Health issues, including attachment difficulties
  • Early pregnancy
  • Physical health and developmental delay
  • Exploitation
  • Disengaging from education

Coventry and Rugby CCG is committed to ensuring the best services are available for all children. The Coventry and Rugby CCG team who can provide support and relevant information include:
