Children in need

What evidence is there for effective intervention?

There is a much published research on interventions to support children in need and on approaches to more preventative ways of working. A recent publication from the Association of Directors of Children’s Services (ADCS) ‘Safeguarding Pressures Research Phase 4 - November 2014’ – weblink: ADCS - Leading Children's Services includes a useful overview of challenges and of examples where greater success is being achieved in reducing the rate of children being referred to social care services.

A range of research has also informed development of various models for management of long term neglect cases. These models should be taken into account as part of future strategic developments for addressing the child in need population.
