Looks at the author′s work as a co‐ordinator of early years services in an authority which has not integrated care and education provision. Her job is to liaise between the education and social work departments of the local authority, and to persuade and negotiate for changes in practice. In the absence of a true corporate strategy she has focused her efforts on working in the private and voluntary sector – often neglected in the power broking of local authority services – and on the creation of single‐issue projects to further the development of co‐ordinated services.
