CLIC Sargent welcomes key working paper

Early Support, an organisation which works to ensure services for children, young people and their families are better co-ordinated, published a new paper on 16 November 2012, outlining how having a key worker could improve the support children and young people receive in a range of situations.

CLIC Sargent contributed feedback from our experience of the first year of a three-year pilot project to determine how having a key worker can support children and young people with cancer, and their families.

Commenting on the publication of Early Support’s paper Key working: improving outcomes for all, Director of Services at CLIC Sargent, Dara de Burca said: “We welcome Early Support’s report which highlights the potential value of key working to children, young people and their families and we were pleased to share some of the work we have been doing around developing a key worker nurse specialist role for children with cancer. It is an important contribution to the debate around how to ensure more children and young people with additional needs can benefit from a co-ordinated key working approach across health, education and social care provision.”
