Developing Responsive Preventative Practices: Key Messages from Children's and Families' Experiences of the Children's Fund
Pinnock, Katherine; Evans, Ruth
Children & Society, v22 n2 p86-98 Mar 2008
As part of the prevention and social inclusion agenda, the Children's Fund, set up in 2000, has developed preventative services for children at risk of social exclusion. Drawing on a large qualitative dataset of interviews conducted in 2004/05 with children, young people and their parents/carers who accessed Children Fund services, this article analyses key practices and approaches valued by children and parents. These included: specialist support tailored to individual support needs, family-oriented approaches, trusting relationships with service providers, multi-agency approaches and sustainability of services. Finally, the article draws out key lessons for the future development of preventative services.
