The level of child poverty in Liverpool is worse than the England average with 33.6% of children under 16 years of age living in poverty.
Furthermore, there were 1,000 children in care at 31 January 2014, again a higher rate than the England average. The number of 16 – 18 year olds not in education, employment or training is significantly worse than the England average.
Against this backdrop, the 0 – 25 Network works to make a difference to the lives of children and young people in Liverpool, focussing on mental health and emotional wellbeing.
We need the help of all organisations working with children and young people. We need to share knowledge of what works and what success looks like. Equally we need to better understand the barriers to success and what people feel they need to develop their services.
By working together we can help the children and young people of our city achieve everything they know they are capable of. Because, fundamentally, we believe every child should have the same chance to succeed.Enquire Now
