4. Please provide your guidance and policy that addresses dovetailing children in conflict with the law and Local Authority duties under the Children Act 1989 concerning children in need; children suffering or at risk of significant harm including threshold criteria; looked after children with particular reference to offences committed in residential care and children who are looked after but are sentenced to custody; looked after children subject to a pathway plan; children and young people who have ceased to be looked after together with arrangements for managing the transition to adult services.
