You can read and download the DSCP Annual Report for Young People 2018. From 1st April 2019 the DSCP will be known as the DSCP but this document was developed as an electronic interactive document in 2018. Have a look and tell us what you think.
We officially launched the first Annual Report for Young People as part of the national Takeover Challenge in 2016 with the County Durham Young Persons’ Police, Crime and Victims Commissioner.
Young people’s experiences of safeguarding.
In Dec 2018 young people from Investing In Children supported the DSCP to find out young people’s opinions about the following questions.
What are the main safeguarding concerns impacting on the lives of young people today?
What do you see as safeguarding priorities for adults to target within a partnership approach? How would you like to know more?
Mental health was a big talking point with both groups and was suggested by both groups as the main issue impacting on many young people and families. Improve ways in which young people and families can have a say about safeguarding support is key to improving safeguarding.
Young people wanted to know what the new partnership does to keep young people safe. The young people believed if that were the case more young people might speak out or contact the right people about concerns they have.
