Every Child Matters
Every Child Matters (ECM)
The 2003 Green Paper ‘Every Child Matters’ was the first response of government to a number of tragic child deaths such as that of Victoria Climbié. The Children Act 2004 encapsulated the Green Paper in legal terms and provided the basis for a radical overhaul of children’s services. This lead in turn to the Education and Inspections Act 2006 which further outlined the responsibilities of education, health, and social services.
