Commenting on the launch of the wave one Family First for Children pathfinder and Family Network pilot ADCS President, John Pearce, said:

“The launch of the wave one Family First for Children pathfinder and the Family Network pilot is a positive step and will build on some of the great work already taking place across the country. I am sure that the local authorities involved will be eager to begin their work co-designing and testing new ways of working that will hopefully strengthen how we support children and their families. During this period of pathfinding and piloting it is crucial that real-time progress and learning is shared with the sector to help other local authorities implement the reforms in the future. The earlier we work with, and provide support to, vulnerable children and families to help them overcome the issues they face, and to stay together safely where possible the less impact these challenges will have on their lives but also on society. While the investment announced today is welcome, we continue to need a long-term equitable funding solution for children’s services so that all children and families can thrive, wherever they live.”
