Details

The Framework has been developed as a resource to enable local areas in the delivery of their public health role for young people. It poses questions for councillors, health and wellbeing boards, commissioners, providers and education and learning settings to help them support young people to be healthy and to improve outcomes for young people.

Alongside the framework, PHE has set up a free dedicated section on its National Child and Maternal (ChiMat) Health Intelligence Network website for local areas to find out the state of young people’s health in their localities.

This is a new framework, which has been developed with support from Association of Young People’s Health and with input from those across health, education, youth services and local and national government.
