What lessons can be learned from the different ways in which residential care is organised throughout Europe? Which countries' services meet children's needs most effectively?

Originally published in 1994, this ebook looks broadly at children and child care services, especially residential child care, in 13 European Union countries, to give an overview of national similarities and differences and identify key areas of change, development and concern.

The European Children's Centre survey, on which this report was based, was commissioned by The Warner Inquiry into the selection, development and management of staff in children's homes. Established in the United Kingdom in response to a number of widely-publicised scandals in residential care, the Inquiry recognised the value of looking to other European countries in order to learn from their successes and failures.
