Reunification and re-entry to care: evidence from the national datasets

A FREE social work webinar , hosted online this autumn by the Department of Social Work and Social Care

Please note: this event will be held online via Zoom. A joining link will be sent closer to the event date and after registration.

Children often return home to their parents after a period in care. However, this exit route is becoming less common and rates of re-entry to care following reunification are still high. A new national study by a team of researchers based at Kingston University considers the evidence on factors affecting the likelihood of re-entry to care, drawing on a quantitative analysis of data from the Children Looked After returns for England. In this webinar, Rick Hood and Allie Goldacre will present the findings from their study and discuss the implications for practice and care planning for this important group of children and young people.
