Learning Review into Deaths of Vulnerable Young Adults

In 2013 the Somerset Safeguarding Children Board and Somerset Safeguarding Adults Board commissioned research to explore the circumstances surrounding the lives of 13 young people who all had been, at some point in their lives, in care in Somerset but sadly died prematurely.  The research aimed to learn more about how services can best support care leavers in their transition to independent adulthood in order to better shape the future organisation and delivery of services to this vulnerable group.  Monitoring and improving transitions between and across services remain a priority for the SSAB.
