Outcomes of Care Proceedings Research

Outcomes of Care Proceedings Research – England & Wales

We are pleased to bring you three short summary reports from the research project on Outcomes of care proceedings before and after the 26-week reforms, led by Prof Judith Masson (University of Bristol) and Prof Jonathan Dickens (University of East Anglia).

The three reports cover: Court outcomes, Children’s outcomes and Insights from data linkage. The study, conducted in six local authorities in England and Wales, examined the operation and impact of the reforms in the Children and Families Act 2014, by comparing two random samples of care proceedings: In 2009-10 before reform and in 2014-15 after reform.

The full research report is due to be published in spring next year.
