About the book:

Launched by the Government in 2003, 'Every Child Matters' is a comprehensive programme of reform for children's services that aims to more closely integrate educational, health, social and specialist services so that there could be earlier intervention and closer working between professionals. This inquiry is an initial overview of progress that looks at: the background to the reform; overarching issues; placing young children at the centre of the reforms; integrated services and processes; integrated strategy and governance and inter-departmental issues. Overall the drive to improve both universal and targeted services in the same suite of reforms has been well received and there is evidence that progress has been made. The issues of concern are: the proposed network of computerised 'child indexes'; whether efficiency savings can pay for improvements; the fact that some agencies such as schools and general practitioners have not been placed under a duty to co-operate; and that there are tensions between different policies affecting children and young people
