In 2008 the London Borough of Hackney radically overhauled its children's social work system and created the Reclaim Social Work model, which has since gained national recognition. At the heart of this innovative system is the endeavour to keep children together with their families. This book sets out what the Reclaim Social Work model is, how it was implemented, and how it works. It explains the model's system of social work 'units' made up of clinicians and therapists and headed by a consultant social worker, and demonstrates how it has worked in practice. Chapters written by consultant social workers with extensive experience of working within the model outline the methodological approaches used and the evidence base underlying the model. This book on a pioneering new social work model will be of great interest to social work managers, policymakers and academics.
