Introduction: Key working is a central feature of family‐centred care, which has been discussed as a model for children's disability services. In Ireland, family‐centred care is a core component of Progressing Disability Services for Children and Young People (Health Service Executive, 2009, 2011). This paper reports on the implementation of a new model of key working within the children's service of a large urban‐based disability service provider.
