Description

Do we hinder or help? The experiences of children and families with care and protection needs: Professor Kate Morris, University of Sheffield

The seminar will focus on the experiences of families with complex needs when accessing and using welfare services. The wider context of child welfare inequalities will also be considered and policy and practice implications discussed. The seminar will draw on a number of recent research studies to consider ways in which social work practices and policies can support or prevent better outcomes for children and their families.

She was previously Director of the Centre for Social Work, University of Nottingham and began her career as an academic at the University of Birmingham. Her areas of interest are: family minded policy and practice, family participation in care and protection, the reform of safeguarding practice and child welfare inequalities.
