‘The last big case we had, it worked extremely well. It was like a well-oiled machine. It came in, [… and the NFGMC worker] did a really good piece of work with the 3 children. […] That nurturing of the children at that stage was really beneficial and led to some more information coming out. (Local Authority Manager)
