Barnardos' Active Case Management

Barnardos. (2008). Barnardos' Active Case Management.
Active Case Management (ACM) provides a framework to ensure we manage our work with children and families effectively. It is a key mechanism for planning and reviewing our work. It ensures we plan services in relation to children’s needs in order to achieve our planned outcomes. ACM helps us to keep our work focused, bringing it through a process of beginning, middle and end, and so reduces the likelihood of drift and dependency. It plays a key role in ensuring that children and families receive a quality service during their time with Barnardos.
