This concluding chapter draws together some of the common themes and issues and makes a plea for social workers in child care and initial assessment teams and those working with children and young people in community and statutory services to assess and recognize that the needs of children and young people change over time, are not constant and often cannot be determined by chronological age. This chapter acknowledges that children and young people are often fully aware of how their needs can be met and children’s rights perspectives which provide for this approach to assessment and provision of support are often the most effective.
