Unit CYP36 – Working together for the benefit of children and young people 1.1 Explain the importance of multi agency working and integrated working. When children are growing up they may require the use of a range of services, depending on their needs and support requirements. It is important for the services involved in each individual young person to work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people. This is multi agency working and it is an effective way of supporting not only young people but also their families. The bringing together of practitioners and professional from different areas provides an integrated way of working and aims to provide support to children and young people earlier to ensure they meet the Every Child Matters outcomes.
By applying inclusive practice this will treat every child and their families as individuals, and will help in adapting to each individual needs. It is very important to understand that inclusion does not mean that we view each other the same or provide the same work, it is about making sure that we are making adaptations to each situation and to the particular activity, instead of making a child do a completely different activity. Like this we are making sure that we are giving each individual the same opportunity. Inclusive practice supports diversity by accepting and welcoming all kind of people in the society. Different approaches, manners and stratagems are applied in order to ensure that people are not secluded or excluded.

1.1 Effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children and adults in order to gather information and pass it on effectively and accurately. It is important to establish positive communication to gain trust. Children who see adults communicating with each other and other children in a positive manner are more likely to learn positive and effective communication skills themselves. For example, it is important to check what we are saying or how we are acting and in times of stress or excitement, and display conversations, mannerisms, body language and behaviour that we expect from the children. Effective communication with parents ensures that they are confident in the school and their child’s learning, which in turn is passed on to the child.
