Top Customer Reviews
This is an impotrant debate that they are putting forward and one that policy makers, service deliverers, politicians and other stakeholders need to have. There is just too much research that shows children and familes are not coming out of the system better off; families are fragmented; the disenfranchised and powerless are too over represented and prevention is ineffective when it is being tried.
Their proposals for change seem impractical and idealistic at some levels. Many practitioners will struggle to see how their changes will not simply be a wave of changes once again engulfing them in efforts that are only a port in an ever changing sea.
This should not stop the potential reader. Indeed, their proposals are a valid starting point in this urgent debate.Read more ›
