Engaging children and families; the role of advocacy within child protection

20th November 2015

The latest publication from the Victoria Climbié Foundation (VCF) – Engaging children and families; the role of advocacy within child protection – a pilot study.

This report offers an evaluative overview of VCF casework. Based on a sample of 49 cases, a retrospective study of VCF processes and outcomes was undertaken. The report focuses on addressing five key areas: (1) the characteristics of VCF clients, (2) the reasons families or family members approach VCF, (3) how VCF works with families, (4) referral pathways, and (5) outcomes of the casework.
