Working Together for Children provides a factual and analytical introduction to the systems and processes of multi-agency work with children and families. It is for trainee practitioners in childcare, education, social work and health care, and for those going on to work, or already working, in such settings who are looking to be more effective practitioners.

Reflection on practice is a theme running throughout the book. To assist readers with this, there are two types of feature: information boxes, giving further factual details of particular areas related to multi-agency work; and reflective exercises containing case studies, vignettes or statements, followed by questions designed to stimulate reflection on issues raised in the text.

Readers should find Working Together for Children incredibly useful for having both an introduction to policy/frameworks and a full and critical evaluation of these in one place.

Review:

It is his insight, born of practical experience combined with academic rigour, which makes Gary Walker's book a truly informed work and an excellent contribution to the field. Armed with publications such as this, policy makers, as well as the growing body which makes up the multi-professional workforce, will be better informed and prepared to take up their roles, and to do so with reflection and insight.

Tricia David, Emeritus Professor of Education, Canterbury Christ Church University and Honorary Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Sheffield (Tricia David)

Working Together for Children fills a timely gap in the market for informed and intelligent books about multi-agency work...This book is packed with information and practical advice, and will be a really useful asset for both individuals studying to understand multi-agency teamwork and for professionals/practitioners charged with making it work.

Angela Anning, Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Leeds, and Visiting Professor at Leeds Metropolitan University (Angela Anning)

This is an excellent book that is easy to read, yet gives in-depth information about multi-agency work. There are a number of case studies which help put the information in context and these are explained in detail at the back of the book. Highly recommended! (Amazon reviewer)

'This is an ideal read for trainee practitioners in childcare, education, social work and healthcare, and for those interested in true partnership working across the multi-professional workforce ... Walker (...) applies his own insight, which is derived from practical and priceless experiences in the field, throughout this book.' EYE - Early Years Educator, April 2009
