Good and innovative practice in service delivery to vulnerable and disadvantaged families and children

CFCA Paper No. 9 – October 2012

Summary

The analysis of the Access Strategy documents has provided a comprehensive insight into the strategies by which FSP services reach, engage, and maintain engagement with vulnerable and disadvantaged families and children. It is clearly evident that organisations have these families as the foremost consideration for their service provision, and that there are numerous examples of both good and innovative practices that aim to meet families' needs. The challenge for some organisations will be to enact the strategies proposed within the document in ways that will maximise service provision while minimising any unintended consequences, such as partnership fatigue.
