This report analyses CCG local transformation plans and assesses the extent to which the plans recognise the role of abuse and neglect as a primary risk factor for mental health needs. The report examines the local level of need and current service offer for children who have experienced abuse and neglect; and whether local areas are planning additional services targeted at this group. The report found that only 14% of plans considered the needs for support of all children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect.
