NSPCC look at how they can better support emotional wellbeing and mental health for children in care.

A new report has been published by the NSPCC on the mental health of young people. The mental health of children in care is significantly more affected than children who are not in care. In fact, 45% of looked after children in England, 45% of looked after children in Scotland and 49% of looked after children in Wales have a mental disorder. In comparison, only 10% of children in private households suffer from a mental illness. It has been shown that good mental health is just as important as good physical health and so the NSPCC are exploring how they can better support children in care to improve their emotional wellbeing.

Dr Christine Harrison reacts to HMIC's post-inspection review of South Yorkshire Police.

Christine who has carried out research in a number of areas, including images of child abuse, says:


Serving your country in the Armed Forces is an honourable achievement and a career path that tens of thousands of men and women choose every day. But what happens when these people leave the forces? The structure, discipline and values instilled into military personnel are undoubtedly skills which employers find desirable – but a transition to civilian life can be tough, especially if leaving the forces wasn’t an active choice.

According to a 2012 study by the German interior ministry, email is the most popular communication technology and is used by 98% of SMEs. But, only 18% of SMEs actually encrypt their emails. Since Edward Snowden’s revelations however, this number has changed dramatically. A recent study from QSC and techconsult indicates that now nearly two thirds of SMEs have installed some kind of encryption technology. Despite this rapid increase in encryption technologies, only half of the employees actually bother to encrypt emails. This means that most encryption solutions are client based and the responsibility for encrypting emails lies solely with the end user – a risky business in the light of compliance conformance where the directors are personally liable.
