Taking Care: a practice framework for reunification: evaluation report.
13 March 2015

Significant numbers of children who return home from care experience abuse and neglect. The NSPCC developed the Taking Care guidance to help local authority social workers decide whether or not it is safe to return a child home. The framework informs and supports work with children and their families throughout the reunification process and following a child's return home.

The Centre for Child and Family Research were commissioned to undertake an independent evaluation of the Taking Care framework. The report includes findings from interviews with parents, children, social workers and managers. It also includes recommendations for strategic leads implementing the framework.
