Social work in the United Kingdom is an activity that benefits from, and often requires, co-operation between different staff and across different professions. How this is to be achieved has been a central dilemma for practice and policy for many years. Primary care health services often play a key role. New policy and practice developments are designed to promote inter-professional working with children, where research has shown significant problems in the community-based health care of looked after children, children leaving care, and children at serious risk. There is, however, little evidence from research that supports current developments in inter-professional practice; analysis of the particular nature of the inter-professional problems is lacking, as are therefore the relevant inter-professional solutions. A framework for better analysis, linked to developments in practice-based research, one that would yield significant improvements for children's welfare, is presented here.
