Values and vision: worldng together in integrated communrty schools? That was the challenging title of a one-day conference held at the University of Aberdeen's King's College Conference Centre in June. It attracted a large number of education, health and social care practitioners, drawn from a wide number of agencies and from most local authorities across Scotland.

The event was planned and organised by the School of Education's NEXUS research group, which focuses on research in the substantive area of inter-professional and interagency collaborative working. Values and vision 2004 was aimed at all practitioners working for education, health and social care agencies, including professionals working in integrated community school (ICS) settings and others with a professional interest in developing new ways of working together in ICS.

The aim underlying the introduction ofICS is to move towards, or 'roll out', single school site delivery of health, education and social care services for children and young people and that every school in Scotland will function as an integrated community school. The document New Community Schools: The Prospectus (1998) argues that 'the climate is right for the development of this new integrated and inclusive approach' (p.2).

Values and vision 2004 set out to examine whether the time is right for ICS, explore the lessons learned to date about joining up working in schools and debate future priorities.
