Turning the Tide: our latest children’s services report

 

This new report furthers the debate about the preventative model we documented in our previous paper Breaking the Lock back in April 2015.

Our new report shares a wealth of evidence we have gathered on the importance of a preventative approach to children’s services. Our view is that we must ‘turn the tide’ away from high cost (and often low impact) statutory provision, towards earlier and more effective intervention that builds sustainable resilience in families.

The report also sets out our views on the potential future delivery and governance models that local authorities need to consider as central government funding finally dries up.
