Leicester City Children and Young People's Service provides a wide range of support services for children, young people and families.
Some of these services can only be provided following an assessment of need.
Our priorities in providing services for children are:
Protecting children who are at risk of physical or sexual abuse or neglect
Doing a good job of looking after those children who cannot live with their own families, often because of abuse or total family breakdown
Wherever possible, helping families solve their problems themselves, either by working with them direct or by putting them in touch with another specialist agency.
We aim to keep families together wherever possible.
We work closely with children and young people, their parents, relatives or other carers and with other organisations to find the best solution.
This will always take into account the child and family’s religious, cultural and social background.
