Community & Peer Issues
Children and adults can cause harm to other children, young people or particularly vulnerable adults. This harmful behaviour may be carried out by an individual, as a part of group or through a community, and can include gang or weapons related violence. It can occur online, for example, when children and young people are coerced to share youth produced sexual imagery ('sexting').
Children who harm others are likely to have additional and complex needs and while they should be held responsible for their behaviour, they should also be safeguarded and their welfare should be promoted.
