It also examines what some authorities are doing in practice and considers some of the principles behind that practice which align with the Care Act 2014, including: co-production and power-sharing; building good relationships with young people and their families; engaging with black and minority ethnic families; proactive early identification; integrated IT systems; and joined-up thinking. It looks at mental health transitions and transition from youth justice and includes a checklist for the identification of seldom heard groups.
