The preceding chapters have, effectively, helped to crystallise some important challenges for those working with children. We have seen, first, that the role of values as a motivating force for the provision of children’s services is central. Values are both powerful drivers of individual preferences and practice orientations, and they are both implicitly and explicitly incorporated in many of the prescriptive statements which are intended to underpin service delivery. This is notably the case for those in the field of statutory social work, but it is also becoming more prevalent in other areas of service delivery, such as Sure Start and Connexions.
