Open Access research that improves the lives of children and families...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by scholars in the School of Social Work & Social Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences (HaSS) .

Research at Social Work & Social Policy seeks to understand the social experiences of children, young people and families, in order to support evidence-informed policy. Issues of public health, health inequalities and health history within the context of social work are also important research themes. Research centres, such as CELCIS (Centre for Excellence for Children's Care & Protection) and the CYCJ (Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice) operate in furtherance of these research areas, supporting evidence-based solutions to improve child wellbeing and improvements in youth justice, and the lives of families and communities.
