Inspired by Simon Sinek’s talk on TED about “People don’t buy what you do; people buy why you do it.”, we think it is useful for us to know why WithScotland do the children protection things. That infomation about what they believe in children protection may gather people who care it together. Since we think the most things that WithScotland website do is collecting the information about organizations and professional reports on children protection, we can make “why they do it” clearer so that people will be more interested in their career and their website.
Why is health important to children?

Looking at the gap
Mind the Gaps – Meeting the Needs of People with Co-occurring Substance Misuse and Mental Health Problems: Report of the Joint Working Group (2003)
Information gaps and developments 3.28-3.31
Excerpt: 3.28 Much of the above evidence comes from continuously collected national datasets, national surveys and research studies. There are, however, key services from which there are no current national databases. Services such as community mental health, police and A & E could also potentially collect information on those with co-occurring substance misuse and mental health problems.

Interagency practice in children with non-organic failure to thrive: Is there a gap between health and social care?
Excerpt: An examination of recent Scottish statistics supports the argument that there may be a gap between health and social care that some children may be falling through. Evidence from the literature regarding interagency roles and responsibilities is ambiguous, and the different, albeit overlapping, professional constructions of failure to thrive may result in a gap in care for some vulnerable children. It is only by beginning to understand the crucial links between different professions that we can contribute towards effective interagency child protection policy and practice.
