The Keyworker: a practical guide


guide titleA comprehensive description and evaluation of the 'One Hundred Hours' model for supporting the families of children who have disabilities

Written by Gudrun Limbrick-Spencer in 2001 and published by WordWorks in association with the Handsel Trust.


One Hundred Hours pioneered and validated the keyworker model in West Yorkshire during the 1990s. The Keyworker explains the model and its rationale and gives case studies to illustrate how it works in practice.

This is an essential guide for organisations wishing to offer effective early child and family support through the keyworker model. It has been written for service planners, managers and keyworkers and will be of interest to families and all practitioners who work with them.
