Skip to 0 minutes and 10 secondsHello, and a warm welcome to your sixth and final week of your course - Caring for Vulnerable Children. In this final week, we finish by reflecting upon and thinking about some of the current challenges that are involved in working with vulnerable children and young people. We think about some of the political demands that exist in relation to this task. And the impact that that can have on the way services are constructed, funded, and ultimately delivered to children and young people and their families. We'll spend some time considering some of the known outcomes that exist in relation to vulnerable children and young people. And we'll use these to ask questions.

Skip to 0 minutes and 52 secondsAre we doing enough Can services, or can society as a whole do more to respond to vulnerable children and young people? And we'll conclude by drawing together some of these agendas. And to think about, within the current political and financial climate, what is the best way for us to respond to vulnerable children and young people? And finally, we'll pose some questions to yourself, the participants, to ask, what role can you play in the future in terms of caring for vulnerable children and young people. We hope you enjoy the week.

Welcome to week six

In this final week we think about some of the current challenges involved in responding to and working with vulnerable children and young people.

We examine some of the political dimensions which impact on how services to children and their families are constructed and delivered.

We consider some known outcomes for vulnerable children and young people and ask if child care services, or society as a whole, is doing enough to support children and their families.

From this we will consider the best way forward in providing services for vulnerable children in young people, within the current political and financial climate and we will conclude by asking you to reflect upon the role you can play in this process.

Enjoy the week!
