Social work seminar: What works in the delivery of children's services?

Professor Donald Forrester is the director of the Tilda Goldberg Centre and a professor of social work research at the University of Bedfordshire. He is one of the leading evaluative researchers in social work in the UK. Professor Forrester practised as a child and family social worker for ten years before moving into research in 2000. His primary focus has been on children affected by parental misuse of drugs or alcohol. This has led to a broader concern with developing robust research to find out what works in social work including Reclaiming Social Work. An Evaluation of Systemic Units as an Approach to Delivering Children's Services (2013) is an in-depth comparative description study of the systemic unit model as an approach to the delivery of children's social services and the factors shaping it in three local authorities in order to understand the factors that shape good or poor practice and to develop theories relating to this.

This seminar on the systemic unit model is relevant to anybody interested in developing more effective ways of delivering children's services.
