Meeting children's needs for care and protection
The core aim of the series was to draw together national and international knowledge and professional, policy and research expertise in relation to the management, evaluation and research of everyday multiprofessional intervention to safeguard children. It comprised two linked elements.
The first focused on the issues involved in using adminstrative data routinely collected on children safeguarded in the community to better inform planning and delivery and research.
The second focused on the methodological issues in designing a longitudinal study that can effectively explore the complex and multidimensional nature of intervention taking account of contextual and process elements.
