This paper focuses on our work with families in Newham,
with some additional information from work with Middlesbrough
children's services. It highlights the positive impact across a
range of outcomes for disabled children and includes more detailed
discussion with families and professionals.
We will be following this paper up with our 'Agenda for Change'
for children's services, which will set out the necessary actions
for the Government and local children's services, as they move to
introduce individual budgets and self-directed support for the
children and families they support.
