Dorset integrated children’s services 

Location: UK » South West » DT

Dorset County Council’s teams of Youth Service, Education Social Work and Attendance Service, Early Years and Childcare (including Children’s Centres) and Extended Schools / Services staff work together on early intervention and prevention.

The council believes that frontline, universal provision (e.g. youth centres/children’s centres) can be protected through a focus on savings in:

• middle and senior manager posts in individual services
• reducing support and advice to students on access to Further Education
• reducing expenditure on the coordination of after-school, holiday, homework and breakfast clubs (schools will continue to have earmarked funds to run these services, but the coalition government has encouraged local authorities to cease any involvement in this)
