Integrating Services for Disabled Children, Young People and their Families in York: Consultation project

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This report concerns the findings of a consultation involving professionals, parents and children and young people. Chapter 2 details the findings from the consultation on views about what needs to change in York with respect to ways of working, research evidence on these issues, possible solutions and ways forward suggested by parents and professionals, and our recommendations. Chapter 3 follows a similar pattern for the gaps in service provision in York identified through the consultation process. The final chapter provides a summary of the key issues emerging from the consultation and potential impacts of these issues on the five Every Child Matters outcomes for children, and highlights key recommendations. We begin, however, with a brief overview of the purpose of the consultation exercise and a description of how the work was carried out. This is followed by a summary of what the participants in the consultation have identified as good and valued services and ways of working in York. Finally in the introduction, we present the gaps and areas for change not taken forward in the second consultation because they were already being addressed in York or were beyond the scope of the consultation.
