The briefing draws on the experience of Barnardo's children's centres and academic research to identify 'what works' in reaching out to vulnerable and disadvantaged families. It has been written primarily for children's centre managers and should also be of interest to local authority commissioners and policy makers. Although this briefing is primarily focused on England, it has important implications for outreach work with children and young people in other nations of the UK.
