Abstract

"Information sharing is an essential element of integrated working, because otherwise children and young people’s stories have to be told over and over again and their support needs can go unmet. Traditionally, young people in the care of the Local Authority may be very used to professionals discussing their needs at Social Care meetings including ‘Reviews’ of their care plans and other gatherings of the practitioners working with them. What this project seeks to explore is how young people themselves are engaged in consenting to that process. This research was undertaken between October 2009 and February 2010 by a foster carer who also manages a youth work project in the voluntary sector working with young people in and leaving care." - Page 4.
