The article discusses how child care practitioners are finding the bar set too high, despite the good intentions on supporting children defined as in need. Jane Tunstill, visiting professor at King's College London, says even in 1989 there were concerns that the definition of a child in need was focused too narrowly on acute services. Jon Brown, operational director of children's services at Action for Children, says the current situation goes against the original intention of the Act.
