Abstract

This book reviews integrated services from children's perspectives, seeking out how government policy has impacted on their lived experiences. It champions child voice in what has hitherto been regarded as adult policy territory. Beginning with a historical exposition of the political and theoretical contexts of Every Child Matters, the book charts children's views about service provision across the full range of health, social care, education and the third sector. An overarching theme of child poverty and disadvantage pervades this evaluation of interagency working across children's services and provides much pause for thought.
