This chapter provides a critical context for the study of children and the practice of working with them, whether in education or social services. It offers a general introduction to services for children and their families, as well as the main policies and legal contexts. The practice of work with children, their parents, carers and families is shaped by the major policy and legal changes of the early 21st century, and particularly by the services and provisions put in place by past and present governments.
