’Promoting children’s wellbeing’ examines the wide-ranging and growing number of policies and practices which are intended to contribute to children’s wellbeing. Topics include the development of children’s identities, the value of play in the lives of contemporary children, the promotion of children’s health, risk and staying safe, and family law. The contributors draw upon research and practice to analyse and examine the policies, services and practice skills needed for collaborative, effective and equitable work with children. It will be important reading for students, practitioners and academics working in a wide range of children’s services across the UK.
