This publication describes the framework for a systematic approach to gathering information about children in need and their families. It provides all the supporting documentation needed by social workers and agencies involved with the assessment of children in need. The text starts by outlining the legislation, responsibilities and principles that local authorities use to promote and safeguard children's welfare and assess their needs. The framework and assessment process is then detailed with reference to the needs of children in general and those who may be vulnerable. The book finishes by considering the arrangements which need to be in place to implement the new framework effectively.
