This work was inspired by government advice and guidance about interagency child protection work, which always seemed to presume too much. This book does not presume too much - it explores, it explains and it attempts to be helpful and relevant to practice. The first edition was published in 1995 and was informed by all the changes that the Children Act 1989 inspired. The second edition has been made necessary by the plethora of changes introduced into childcare practice after 1997. Thus it encompasses the changes brought about by Working Together to safeguard Children and the Framework for Assessment of Children in Need. More important it comes in the wake of the profoundly distressing Inquiry into the death of Victoria Climbie (Laming, 2003) where, once again, the difficult nature of interagency work has been highlighted. Finally it explores the Government’s response to the Laming Inquiry and its response to the interagency ‘problem’ including Keeping Children Safe and the green paper Every Child Matters.
