Working together with fellow professionals across different sectors of children's services is central to good practice for all those who work with children and young people. This book looks at how children's services can work together more effectively; by taking an approach that is grounded in research, the book engages critically with both the benefits and the pitfalls of integrated working. The importance of relationships, roles, responsibilities and strategic planning is discussed, and chapters cover: - what integrated working looks like in practice - how early years services work - ethnicity - Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) - disability and integrated working. The book encourages readers to reflect on their own background and how this influences their view of specific children, families and fellow professionals, as well as their own practice. Suitable for all those working with children and young people from birth to 19 years in any aspect of children's services, this book will ensure professionals work together successfully to the benefit of all.

The Integrated Children's System (ICS) was developed to support effective practice with children and families and improve decision making and planning for children in need. This book outlines what the ICS is and how it works, and assesses the effectiveness of a number of pilot studies, offering guidance for others using and implementing the system, which is being rolled out nationally. Part of the Government's long term programme to improve outcomes and life chances for children, the system provides a more structured and systematic approach by integrating the processes of working with children in need from the point of first contact through to the final review. The Integrated Children's System is vital reading for policymakers, social care managers, social care practitioners and those responsible for implementing the system.
