Our comments: West London Zone's reporting considered a completed two-year programme from one cohort (2016-2018) against a mid-programme survey taken from another cohort (2017-2019). The two cohorts’ surveyed indicate young people who were previously 'at risk' have now improved or met targets. These positive outcomes were achieved from the second cohort in a shorter intervention period which demonstrates the programmes progress
