Children's Services

Improving services for children and families

You need to know whether and how your early help or targeted and specialist supports are providing the right help at the right time for children and families.

IPC works with service leaders and practitioners, commissioners and providers, children and families to explore how well services are working, for whom and in what circumstances – and to identify ways in which services can be improved or refined to maximise their impact and outcomes. Our expertise covers the full range of services offered to children, young people and their families: from public health, prevention and early intervention to child protection, youth justice and CAMHS provision
