The purpose of this Evidence Review is to examine the latest practice, policy and evidence, bringing together social work in the 21st century, and reforms to support families with disabled children and young people. The authors are experts, from a range of backgrounds and professions, who share a passion and abiding commitment to working with and for disabled children, young people and their families.
The review is timely in that it provides an opportunity to consider how all of the current changes to the social work role - the drive towards innovation, ‘doing more for less’ and the focus on special educational needs and disability (SEND) - will work to improve outcomes. Its five chapters cover the following topics:
- Social work innovation and policy into practice.
- Voice, participation and co-production with disabled children and young people.
- Transition to adulthood.
- Safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of disabled children and young people.
- Working together for disabled children in Birmingham.
Aimed at: Strategic leaders in this field; social work managers and practitioners working to support children and young people with SEND.
