This book can be of help to anyone who works in group care with children and young people whether they are living away from home, for example in children’s homes, hospitals, residential schools, or are in the care of others during the day, for example, at family centres. It cannot give all the answers, but it does enable carers to: improve the important service they provide for children in need and their families; explore and reflect on the many issues that arise in this difficult and demanding, but also rewarding work, linking their practice, prior experience and reading; share ideas and learning with colleagues and be able to use them as a learning resource too; cope with the work’s many pressures; carry on learning and developing. The key concepts and issues relating to group care are clearly explained and are illustrated with relevant practice examples, helpful diagrams and so on. Guidance on good practice is given, including advice on how to avoid some of the common pitfalls and how to develop the skills which make for good child care.
