Are we nearly there? Achieving Equality Child Protection in the UK

The Department for Education’s blueprint for child protection, ‘Putting Children First’ (2016), made equality in service provision a central goal of policy in England. However, a recent study of child protection plans and looked after children intervention rates across the 4 UK countries, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, reveals how far there is to go to achieve that outcome. In this seminar, key findings from the study and their implications for policy and practice will be presented.

Professor Paul Bywaters, Coventry University, currently leads the two year study, ‘Inequalities in Child Welfare Intervention Rates in the 4 UK countries’. This project, involving team of researchers in seven UK universities, builds upon earlier work which established key drivers of the vary large inequities in children’s chances of experiencing a child protection intervention in England, also funded by the Nuffield Foundation, and a rapid evidence review of the relationship between poverty and child abuse and neglect for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Paul has been a social work educator and researcher for over 40 years and has written extensively about the relationship between social work and social inequalities.

All UoB staff and students welcome
