Our recent child protection and family support research spans the safeguarding continuum including  studies of the most serious maltreatment resulting in death and serious harm to children; children on the edge of care and in care proceedings; support for families with complex problems; and children's views of child protection and other services.

The use of innovative participatory methods has enabled us to involve not only children and families in many studies but also young researchers to try to understand more about children's lives and how to make services more responsive to children and their families' needs.
