'We Should Have Been Helped From Day One': Key Messages About Neglect and Early Intervention for Elected Members


29 January 2014

The Local Authorities Research Consortium’s (LARC) latest round of research into early intervention and children experiencing neglect highlights some important messages for frontline practitioners and those leading and managing colleagues who work with families with additional needs. Specifically, this summary presents our key messages for elected members who may be interested in these findings and our recommendations. The summary is based on interviews with over 105 practitioners, and 40 children and families across nine English local authorities. We have also produced summaries for education colleagues, health practitioners and Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) members.
