Matching Children’s Needs and Services: A Case of Three Circles

Are services meeting the needs of children? Dartington’s new report: Matching Children’s Needs and Services: A Case of Three Circles draws on a decade of data from 38,000 children and families to answer two fundamental questions: How much need is there in the population? Are services adequate to meet those needs? Important questions, especially in the context of the spending review that’s underway.

There are acknowledged weaknesses with this study – it only relates to data obtained from one authority and the sampling method could be more robust – so the findings are provided with caveats. But, if the results are true, they are really worry. There is a group of young adults who are in need but disconnected from families, public services and their communities and ‘for every child in need receiving a service there is at least another one who isn’t’.

An important read that worthy of further discussion. Share your thoughts here on Twitter. #Dartington3Circles
