We undertake projects designed to research and develop policy and practice towards families involved in the care system. Please click on the links below for more information.
Domestic violence project
The aim of the project is to enable mothers in London who are survivors of domestic violence to be in a position to make informed decisions and influence what happens to their children when social workers are involved.
Young Parents project
This project focuses upon young parents whose children are/have been subject of Children's Services intervention – whether as children in need, children deemed at risk or as children placed in care. The overarching aim is to enable more young parents to keep their children safely with them.
This project aims to identify barriers to the inclusion of fathers and paternal relatives of children within the child welfare system, and to start examining what works and why.
