The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) as proposed by Every Child Matters (2007), is a relatively new standardised approach for assessing the need for services for children and is part of a wider government programme to provide integrated services including the need to improve multi-agency working. The CAF is a common language in assessment and is based upon the five outcomes of Every Child Matters (Brammer 2007). Every Child Matters raises questions of where LAC should be (or get to) in relation to other children.
