Child protection is a key area of past success for the CRCF which is being expanded into a range of studies, including working with men and fathers in child protection, and preventing child sexual exploitation. All studies continue to produce important findings for policy and practice to improve children's safety and well being as well as support for their families.
Our recent child protection and family support research spans the safeguarding continuum including studies of the most serious maltreatment resulting in death and serious harm to children; children on the edge of care and in care proceedings; support for families with complex problems and children's views of child protection and other services.
The use of innovative participatory methods has enabled us to involve not only children and families in many studies but also young researchers to try to understand more about children's lives and how to make services more responsive to children and their families' needs.
