Many Hands Make Light Work: Innovation and Consolidation in Children and Youth Services

Kindly supported by:


On Wednesday 25th March NLGN will be hosting a roundtable to explore innovative models and more consolidated approaches to delivering local children’s and youth services, and how councils and public sector partners can realise the potential benefits.

In this policy area so acutely important to children’s life chances, barriers to success are often keenly felt. In the current climate of austerity, innovation and integration are key to securing and delivering quality children’s and young person’s services. Some local authorities are already leading the way – sharing services, spinning out into public service mutuals and involving the community in the commissioning process are all innovative steps that certain local authorities are taking to ensure better outcomes in this policy area. But more work is needed to ensure that all local authorities can access the benefits of greater integration in this area.

This roundtable discussion will bring together leading professionals to discuss new and innovative models for children and youth service, the most effective avenues to delivering improvements in these vital services and provide an opportunity to hear from and exchange ideas with leading practitioners in this field.

This event is free to attend and lunch will be provided along with a not-to-be-missed opportunity to network with other leading figures in this field.
