Research

I have been involved in many research projects. Sadly not all of these have reached the stage of a published report or are available to the public.

 

I believe in making research and knowledge available and accessible. This section presents some of the research I have been involved in over the years by providing an overview of the work, reflections since the completion of the project and links to the more in-depth report, where possible.

This piece of research explored the in care and leaving care experiences of 310 care leavers aged 17 – 78. It is currently the biggest piece of research in this area and provides us with many interesting insights into the long term effects

(positive and negative) of living in and leaving

the care system.

This research focused on the oral histories with 25 adult care leavers. There are many different elements to this research which will grow and develop as I bring them together - so watch this space. Initially, what is presented here is an overview of

this piece of work.

Taking Place Seriously

The visual layout and contents of a children’s home often make them quite institutional places to live and work. This piece of research explored with staff and young people what would make a children's home a more homely place to be.

In 2013 I was involved in setting up, training and consulting on a project that the Social Care Institute for Excellence developed in relation with the British Library. Here older care leavers shared their experiences of being in care with younger care

leavers.

Still Caring?

In 2013 the Children and Young People Bill was being developed to include an extension of young people being able to stay in foster care up until their 25th birthday. Myself and a couple of colleagues developed this paper to support this proposal

and highlight a number of issues

Education

Education is one of the most explored areas of work with young people in care and care leavers. It is an area we can easily quantify and is seen as an area of success or failure for practitioners and young people in their care. Here is some of the work I have been involved in and organisations I have come across

in this.
