Outcomes of social care provision for children with different types of need

Social workers tend to record certain combinations of needs when they carry out a child and family assessment. However, little is known about what combinations are most prevalent for which children, and how children's characteristics and needs affect what happens after an assessment is completed. In this webinar, we will present key findings from a two-year quantitative study of national data for children's social care and education in England, funded by Nuffield Foundation, which examined the relationship between assessed needs and the outcomes of provision. The study looked at a range of outcomes, including child protection and care interventions, re-referrals and re-entries to care, school exclusions, and educational attainment. Join us online for the presentation and discussion, and for the launch of our national report.
