Health of looked after children

Looked after children are those who are in the care of the local authority. They are likely to have experienced significant disruption in their lives and this can make looking after their health more difficult to achieve.

We know that being healthy is about emotional and mental wellbeing, as well as being physically healthy. Making sure that all looked after young people and those leaving care are healthy is extremely important in Wiltshire.
