Meeting the specific needs of children and families is the central aim for multi-agency workers. How can you fulfil your role in this process?

Women in discussion

Multi-agency working means bringing different services, agencies and teams of professionals together, in order to support and help children and families with particular needs. With multi-agency working, these professionals assess the kind of intervention or support that might be beneficial or necessary for a child or family.

The importance of a multi-agency approach came into the spotlight following the publication of the Green Paper entitled ‘Every Child Matters’ in September 2003. This Green Paper was published alongside the formal response to the report into the death of Victoria Climbié. The poor integration of services was identified as a key reason for the failure of professionals to protect and save this young child.
