Dignity and Inclusion: Making it work for children with complex health needs

Written by Jeanne Carlin and Jan DelamoreDate 17 Apr 2014

This publication will help all service providers to ensure that disabled children and young people with additional support needs can access services and lead a life as part of their local community, focusing on children who require clinical procedures, children who require moving and handling and children who need intimate care as part of their personal support. 

Drawing on and including examples of good practice from across the country, Making it work for children with complex health care needs illustrates the ways in which all agencies can work together to develop local policies and procedures to ensure that the needs of this group of children are met in a coordinated and child-centred way.

Making it work for children with complex health care needs is one of two companion publications detailing good practice in both inclusive and specialist settings across education, health, social care and leisure. Making it work for children with behaviour that challenges is also available from Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
