Description

We will answer a number of questions related to children's experiences of vulnerability, including:

  • What does vulnerable mean?
  • What are the life experiences of people that experienced vulnerability as children?
  • What indicators suggest poor childhoods?
  • What childhood indicators suggest poor life outcomes?
  • How do people that experienced vulnerability as children interact with other government services throughout their lives?
