Multi-agency working is an effective, challenging way of supporting children and families with additional needs and securing real improvements in their life outcomes. The Change for Children programme paves the way for more multi-agency services delivering a range of early intervention and preventive work in and close to schools and early years settings.This online resource is for frontline managers and practitioners in a range of settings, who are starting to work with children and families in these new ways. It contains specialised toolkits for practitioners and managers of teams, panels and integrated services.

The toolkits are available at: http://www.everychildmatters.gov.uk/
