Obstacles to health & development
“Obstacles to health & development”, as identified within the Wiltshire Children’s Services Pathways Project, are
the circumstances that stand in the way of children and young people achieving the desired “Every Child Matters” outcomes and are likely to result in their having additional needs.
Included are children and young people who experience problems in relation to: where they live; family life; quality of care; school and education; bullying and discrimination; offending and drug misuse; and health.
Onset (not an acronym) is an assessment tool designed for use in early intervention crime prevention programmes to help target resources for young people who may become involved in offending behaviour. For each young person, Onset identifies risk factors that need to be reduced and positive factors that can be strengthened.
