The Children’s Commissioner’s local area profiles of child vulnerability build on our long-term programme of work on vulnerable children. This data shows, council by council, our latest data on levels of childhood vulnerability.
It provides a way for councils to understand which groups of children are likely to be at risk under lockdown, and how many children in their area fall into those groups. Local authorities can factor this information into their responses to Covid-19. This data also provides a framework for central government to target additional resources at the areas most in need, and to support national policies.
This is a live, evolving resource that we will continue to update with additional data and new features.
