Health chief: FGM, gangs and self-harm among challenges facing 'changing' Havering
by Sebastian Mann
Gangs, female genital mutilation and self-harm have all been identified as challenges facing a "changing" Havering, councillors and health chiefs were warned yesterday.
The borough is doing a "good" job but lacks the resources of other parts of London – even though similar issues are growing in significance, Havering Council's health and wellbeing board heard.
Children and adults safeguarding boss Brian Boxall said: "Youngsters are being identified who are the subjects of abuse. Things like gangs – that's starting to look different. They do exhibit and are probably in the early stages."
