    This book has been in the planning and the writing for over two years. Over this period we have benefited from discussions with a whole variety of colleagues, both in Leeds and Huddersfield, and also with practitioners, policy makers, managers and researchers all over the country. In particular we would like to acknowledge the contributions from the candidates who have studied for the West Yorkshire Post Qualifying Child Care Award and the MA Child Welfare and Safeguarding at the University of Huddersfield. Their experiences and insights have been invaluable. Finally, we would like to thank Sue Hanson and Pam Irwin for making sure it all came together at the end. We are, of course, completely responsible for what follows.
