“Working across children’s and adults services: creating seamless services in the post ECM world”

Beverley Hughes talks to the LGA about joining up children’s and adult services:

The extent to which effective joint working actually happens is a crucial determinant of the wellbeing of some of our most vulnerable children, young people and their families. It has a significant impact on how effectively children are safeguarded from the risk of harm. And it also has the capacity to help families thrive.

That is why it matters so much that we get it right.

It matters most for families who need the most help. It matters for example for families facing multiple and entrenched problems – and Hilary Armstrong will very shortly be publishing a report showing how much more could be done to promote better joint working for families who are most at risk in which early intervention with both children and adults can make the most difference.
