Teenage Pregnancy and Looked After Children

Teenage Pregnancy and Looked After Children (Teenage Pregnancy Unit, England) 2001-2003

This commission by the (then) government’s Teenage Pregnancy Unit included giving the Plenary presentation and organising a number of consultation workshops at a national seminar for Regional Teenage Pregnancy Co-ordinators, Quality Protects managers, civil servants and academics (2001), followed by development of a resource plus examples of good practice concerning ‘Teenage Pregnancy and Looked After Children’. I was invited to present about the implications of this work to researchers and practitioners.
