Abstract

This chapter opens by tracing the historical antecedents of the Children Act (1989). The immediate origins of the Act, its principles and its provisions in relation to children in need are then outlined. This is followed by an account, based on research, of the progress made in implementing the legislation. The factors which have impeded progress are then examined as a prelude to a discussion of possible ways by which to move towards needs-led services.
