Milton Keynes is to become the first local authority in the country to split its social services into two sections - one for adults and another dealing with the whole needs of children, according to BBC Three Counties.

It will make the changes when it takes over social services from Buckinghamshire CC to become a unitary authority next April.

The chairman of Milton Keynes BC's community care committee, George Conchie, said: 'The present system as we have it at the moment has actually allowed things to fall through the gap. What we are doing is drawing together the educational needs of children from when they are born to when they actually leave school.

'So we are integrating and looking at the total approach, and we are totally based on 'What are the children's needs' from when it starts to when it leaves school'.
