Improving Children's Services Networks: lessons from Family Centres.
London, UK: Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
This book details and evaluates research into the developing role of family centres in the light of current political and social trends, including the Every Child Matters legislation, and draws conclusions that will be instructive across children's services. It outlines the different user groups served by family centres, the range and combination of services provided and the contribution of these to positive outcomes for children. The authors also identify major tasks facing family centres, such as optimizing access to services and managing key partnerships across social care, education and health care.
||Book included as one of a suite of commissioned studies in the overview of the DfES Supporting Parents Research Initiative. See Quinton, D. Supporting Parents: Messages from Research, Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
