  1. Towards the Disintegration of Child Welfare Services.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper examines market issues in the provision of children's services in the light of the changing role and practice of local authorities contracting for welfare services.

    In adult services, where there has been a legal requirement to reorganize on market lines, the services have had to modify some of their earlier contracting practices to take account of the complex requirements of health and welfare services and it is argued that relational contracting offers a more appropriate paradigm for these.

    Following the implementation of the Children Act 1989, although not a requirement of the Act, many of the organizational systems in relation to markets, originally developed for adult services, have been adopted for children's services.

    Two areas of services for children, day care and fostering services, are discussed in order to demonstrate that these contracting systems are inappropriate and often dysfunctional for the children concerned.

    It is argued that there is a widening gap between contracting systems in adult and children's services which needs to be addressed.

    In general, it is concluded that the philosophies of the market place are flawed when applied to children's services.
