Offering practical advice and guidance on how to establish and maintain effective multi-agency partnership working in your setting, this book will tell you how to meet the Every Child Matters outcomes for children and young people.
It clarifies the skills and knowledge required in order to form productive partnerships, and shows you how to set up and maintain good collaborative practice.
The following are provided:

It is an invaluable resource for leaders and managers in any early years setting, Children's Centre, primary, secondary or special school or Pupil Referral Unit, and will support anyone responsible for coordinating and managing multi-agency partnership working.
Lecturers in higher education responsible for training members of the children's workforce will value this book, as well as Local Authority officers and Workforce Remodelling Advisers.
Excellent book with up to date theories and models which mapped across to our Assessed Learning outcomes
A very easy to follow book with great amount of information relevant to teaching safeguarding and children in care.
A useful source for those studying modules which explore the issues of integrated and multi agency working.
A interesting book which explores the concept of multi agency working under 'old' the Every Child Matters agenda. However caution is advised when acknowledging the ECM outcomes as the terminology for this agenda was changed when the old coalition government came into power in 2010.
Very easy to read and the students think it is clear and informative.
A good companion book for the strategy module.
Still useful book with practical helps for teaching about collaborative working.
Although a little dated now much of the content is still very relevant and the rationale for integrated working is still current. Clearly set out to support student researching and effectively supported by downloadable materials. A lot of supportive material for students to use in practice and through experience this will support understanding. I would have liked to see more signposting to more academic sources but a useful starting point.
This is a useful book for lecture notes and preparation. However a large part of the book is linked to Every Child Matters which is the support for learning initiative used in England. In Scotland it is a different initiative and would be confusing for students.
This book is effective for understanding team working and role of multiagency working in early years. The exercises discussed are very good and helpful for understanding the concept of multiagency working.
