star this property answer text <p>The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport monitors proposed changes to library service provision throughout England, but does not hold complete figures on the number of public libraries closed from 2010 to date.</p><p> </p><p>Local authorities in England have a statutory duty to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service, and it is for individual local authorities to decide how best to provide a public library service that meets local needs within available resources. However, DCMS works with the Libraries Taskforce and local and central government to promote good practice and innovation to sustain and improve library services in England.</p><p> </p><p>In 2017, DCMS and the Libraries Taskforce commissioned research by SERIO about how community managed libraries in England operate, and lessons that can be learnt and shared about their effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability. Following consideration of the report and its recommendations, DCMS and the Libraries Taskforce has improved and strengthened information and guidance on community managed libraries. For example, updating the Taskforce’s Community Managed Libraries toolkit for those running or considering establishing community libraries. DCMS and the Libraries Taskforce has also worked with partners to help community managed libraries to set up a peer network, to build closer links and to share learning and support between themselves.</p>

However, a table showing a count of finished admission episodes (FAEs) with a first recorded cause code of self-poisoning or self-harm for patients aged under 18 in England from 1997-98 to 2006-07 and 2007-08 to 2016-17 is attached due to the size of the data.</p><p>The attached data shows an increase in FAEs relating to self-harm in young people over this time period. FAEs show a count of activity rather than people, as a person may be admitted to hospital more than once.</p><p>However, the increases shown in the data should also be interpreted in the context of improving data collection and reporting and increasing knowledge, awareness of self-harming and empowerment of people to report self-harm.</p><p>For example, during the time period, the Hospital Episode Statistics dataset has improved the quality of its data and increased its coverage of activity to include the independent sector, which will be factors in the higher activity shown in later years. There have also been improvements in data recording in later years. We have also seen increased self-reporting of self-harm through other data collections such as the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey between 2014 and the previous report in 2007, which would support the assumption of increased knowledge and awareness and less stigma so that people feel more able to report self-harm.</p><p> </p>
