ADCS Safeguarding Pressures National Research: Phase 5

ADCS Safeguarding Pressures research has provided evidence of trends in safeguarding activity and the provision of services to children and their families based on information from local authorities in five phases spanning 2007/8 to 2015/16. Through each phase, significant increases in safeguarding activity have been reported together with the range of contributing factors, including austerity.

Phase 5, consisting of a main report and two special thematic reports on early help (to be published in early 2017) and unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children brings the evidence base up to date in the current context in which children’s services are operating.

Evidence about early help and social care services was provided by 132 local authorities (87%), 19 interviews with directors and assistant directors of children’s services, and four case studies informed the latest version of the report.

Each stage of the research is available via the links below.
