Thank you to everyone who attended our Longitudinal Study of Children in Care in NI lunchtime seminar.
Montserrat Fargas Malet from QUB presented the findings of a longitudinal study which has been tracking the placements and measuring the outcomes for a population of looked after children. The study provides a comparative analysis of outcomes across the five placement types of adoption, foster-care, kinship foster-care, residence orders and living with birth parents. The presentation generated discussion and questions which Dominic and Montserrat facilitated.
Please take time to watch Montserrat's presentation:
