IPC research into parents with learning disabilities in care proceedings

IPC has been commissioned by the Nuffield Family Justice Observatory (NFJO) to undertake a study to explore the prevalence and experience of parents with learning disabilities or difficulties involved in care proceedings concerning their babies in England. We will work in partnership with an award-winning expert by experience organisation, My Life My Choice, and with 5 local authority sites to co-produce a mixed-method study involving: case file sampling, interviews with parents, an interviews with professionals frequently involved in care proceedings, from social workers & support workers to lawyers and judges.

We are actively seeking local authority partners who would like to participate in the research.

For more information and an informal, confidential conversation about what that might involve, or for any other queries about the study, please contact Katy Burch (kburch@brookes.ac.uk)
