Children and young people’s risk behaviours: discussion paper

This publication explores the decrease in risky behaviours in children and young people, possible causes and what new risks could emerge.

The horizon scanning programme team led a research project on risk behaviours in children and young people in the first year of the programme.

This paper summarises the views of the academics, practitioners, policy officials and young people at this discussion. It is not a statement of government policy.

The trends data pack sets out how a range of risk behaviours and negative outcomes have changed over time for children and young people.
