The delivery partner will work across Dartford, Gravesham, Medway, Sevenoaks and Swale to support the CYP (and their families) identified in both the prevent and the protect cohorts, although data tells us that we expect the demand for both to be predominantly in Medway, Dartford and Gravesham.

The service will work flexibly across local authority boundaries to ensure that there is an effective response to CYP who are identified as needing either preventative or protective support.
