Research study on removal of new born babies

Post by Administrator » Wed Oct 16, 2019 9:23 pm

Family Rights Group is working with the Centre for Child and Family Justice Research at Lancaster University who are undertaking a new research project focussing on improving practice when a local authority intervenes in the lives of newborn babies.

The research team is recruiting mothers, who have had a baby removed from their care at birth or within days of birth, to the 'experts by experience advisory group' to help to shape the research project. If you are a women in this situation, would you be interested in joining the group? It will meet in Manchester or London approximately every 4 months for two hours. All out of pocket travel expenses will be reimbursed and refreshments provided. All members will also receive a £10 voucher at each meeting.

The project aims to design new national guideline for practice. It addresses major gaps in national guidance, which currently provide little advice for either professionals or family members involved in the separation of mothers and babies at birth for reasons of child protection.
