Generalist working with youth and families in The Netherlands
In January 2015 a new Youth Act came into effect in the Netherlands, whereby all Dutch municipalities are now responsible for the whole range of care for children, young people and families.
This factsheet explores - in 2013 - the road towards these changes and what it meant for professionals and local policy makers that were experimenting with new ways of working, for example in combined teams: professionals from various social work and public health disciplines working together to support children and families. The factsheet provides an insight into their aims and objectives and outlines the necessary competences of the professionals working in these teams.
