Three years after the publication of the influential Munro Report in 2011, Moving on from Munro draws together a range of experts in the field of child protection to critically examine the effects that the Munro reforms have had on multi-agency child protections systems in the United Kingdom. Focusing on topics such as early intervention, vulnerable adolescents, and multi-agency responses to young people at risk, policy and practice specialists join academics in different areas of children’s services to consider what good services look like. They then consider the challenges that stand in the way of improving services and how to overcome them. 
John Coughlan, Director of Children’s Services, Hampshire County Council
“This book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding or influencing the future of child protection in England. Our services and professional ethos approach yet another crossroad, defined not least by individual tragedies more so than the unspoken successes. This collection of essays offers cool thought and consideration into a heated and emotive landscape.” 
 
 
Enver Solomon, Director of Evidence and Impact, National Children’s Bureau, UK
“At a time when the public discourse is often seeking black and white answers to high profile child protection failings, this volume provides policy makers and practitioners with a measured and reflective analysis that is much needed.” 
 
 
Sue Woolmoore, child protection specialist
“Keeping the ship afloat on the turbulent tides of multi-agency child safeguarding has never been more challenging. This publication creates a precious space in which we can reflect on the impact of the external influences and cultural shifts, which have the potential to both enable and disable our best efforts to respond to the recommendations of the Munro review.”
