IPC commences an evaluation of therapeutic support for families who have experienced trauma or abuse

IPC has been commissioned by Barnardo’s to undertake this evaluation of an established service provider ‘Mandala’ in the South West of England.  The evaluation will include:

  • A rapid review of the existing evidence base relating to therapeutic support for families experiencing trauma or abuse
  • An analysis of existing service data
  • A ‘deeper dive’ evaluation involving case file analysis and interviews with families who have received a service as well as other professionals involved in supporting them
  • An exploration of what works with staff involved in delivering the service

The findings will be available in the Autumn of 2017.
