The Leadership Imperative
Our report on leadership in children's serives is out today (download it here). After much scratching of heads we called it The Leadership Imperative; we argue that the greatest challenge facing children's services is to change professional cultures, and whilst central government can help support this, it certainly can't 'deliver' it.
The report's received some coverage in the last week or so. Hannah has a peice on the Guardian online; there is a report in the TES this week looking at our recommendations to create a slightly more constructive relationship between central and local government (top of page 4 if you have the paper, but i can't find it on the website); and there are some short peices here and here from The Times and Young People Now.
Updated: turns out it was also covered in Community Care here.
