Upcoming Making Research Count (York) events


Decision-making and outcomes for maltreated children

In what circumstances are some children placed in care while others are supported at home? Crucially, what are the outcomes for these two groups of children?


Human trafficking: understanding the health needs of formerly trafficked people

Join us to hear about health needs related to formerly trafficked adults and young people (aged 14 to 21) and key barriers to accessing health services.


Do children's services reflect, reinforce or reduce social inequalities?

This session will report a major UK-wide study of inequalities in children's chances of being on child protection plans or being a looked after child.
