We have undertaken a few FGC referrals and meetings with Adult Social Care in Greenwich with positive outcomes. I do personally feel that the FGC model can and should be championed throughout Local Authorities Care Services as it is a means of engaging and empowering the wider network be that around a child, older person, those within youth justice etc.
