The What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care is a new project to foster evidence-informed practice in the sector in England.
What will the future Centre do?
The broad scope will cover support for children from the point of
referral through to permanence, including adoption, care-leaver support
and targeted early help. Its focus will be on children’s social care
practice in England, but it will draw on and share learning at the
international level as well.
Centre will target children’s social work practitioners, but its
broader audience will include all practitioners and decision-makers
working within children’s social care, including those in residential
homes, healthcare, policing and policymakers
