Publisher:

Describes a staff development consultancy on research, the law and good practice in relation to disabled children and their families. It was provided for Warwickshire Social Services Department by the University of Warwick and piloted an approach which was further developed in subsequent joint work. The consultancy addresses the need for staff to be informed by both their employing authority and external bodies. By tying the work into the system of performance reviews, it also aimed to resolve some problems commonly associated with externally-provided training, namely that it is not sufficiently related to the policy objectives of an organisation or existing mechanisms for achieving them.
