Family complexity and social work

A comparative study of family-based welfare work in different welfare regimes.
We face major policy and practice concerns about how best to respond to ‘troubled families’, protect children or arrange informal support around vulnerable adults. Families are variously seen as both the problem and the solution. However, existing service provision can find thinking family both challenging and controversial – and can struggle to provide coherent and effective strategies for engaging with the complex realities of family life.

Family Inclusive Policy and Practice - ESRC Knowledge Exchange

The programme will connect with existing learning, development and evaluation work within organisations; host knowledge exchange seminars; and develop web-based resources for the wider policy and practice community.
