Area Child Protection Committees are at the heart of interagency child protection services in Britain. This text provides a detailed analysis of ACPC's and how they operate. The authors examine the policy role of the committees, the processes of representation, and effectiveness of the commitee's work both in directing practice and in responding to change. They also report on research into how ACPC's deal with cases that go wrong. The book considers the impact both of agency reorganization and of changes in held care policy on the work of the committees, and includes an account of the development of children's services plans. If child protection policy is to change its direction, then ACPC's will have to change too. This work seeks to contribute to an understanding of how that can happen.
