Care Co-ordination Network UK

Care Co-ordination Network UK (CCNUK)No longer exists but was a networking organisation promoting and supporting care co-ordination or key working, for disabled children and their families in the United Kingdom. CCNUK was a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, its head office used to be in York

The CCNUK mission was to work in partnership with disabled children, their families and professionals, to ensure that all families across the UK have access to high quality care co-ordination or key worker services.

CCNUK developed its work to achieve the following six strategic objectives:

  • to promote the model of key working for disabled children and their families at both a policy and practice level;
  • to provide information to the families of disabled children, to professional and academic bodies, service providers and commissioners;
  • to provide training to new and established key worker services;
  • to contribute to and support research on key working for disabled children and their families, and to look at ways of supporting the implementation of key findings from research;
  • to develop the participation of young disabled people and their families, including families and young people from black and minority ethnic communities;
  • to manage Care Co-ordination Network UK effectively.

Famous quotes containing the words network and/or care:

    How have I been able to live so long outside Nature without identifying myself with it? Everything lives, moves, everything corresponds; the magnetic rays, emanating either from myself or from others, cross the limitless chain of created things unimpeded; it is a transparent network that covers the world, and its slender threads communicate themselves by degrees to the planets and stars. Captive now upon earth, I commune with the chorus of the stars who share in my joys and sorrows.
    Gérard De Nerval (1808–1855)

    A new talker will often call her caregiver “mommy,” which makes parents worry that the child is confused about who is who. She isn’t. This is a case of limited vocabulary rather than mixed-up identities. When a child has only one word for the female person who takes care of her, calling both of them “mommy” is understandable.
    Amy Laura Dombro (20th century)
