  • Information


This much-needed book examines the implications of the 'Every Child Matters' (ECM) national and local framework for working with children.

It analyses the key issues from the perspective of the different professions that make up the 'new children's workforce' and explores interprofessional considerations. The book includes practice issues and case examples from health, education, social work, playwork, children's centres and early years, and considers the opportunities and challenges presented by the current agenda.

It will be widely welcomed by tutors and practitioners alike, enabling readers to make sense of the legislation and national guidance, and to understand better the new agendas for children's services.
