In September 2008, the Social Policy Research Unit hosted a conference at the University of York on Researching the Future for Children, Families and Well-being. The conference aimed to bring together some of the most influential and knowledgeable individuals and organisations involved in carrying out, funding and using research about children made vulnerable by disability, long-term health conditions, poverty or family crisis, abuse and neglect.

The reason for hosting the event was that we thought it timely, as shifts in policy responsibility for children were bedded in, to examine the impact of those shifts on research. There is a growing view that there has been some loss of focus and impetus in relation to children’s research as a result of the policy shifts, and that it is time for us reinvigorate the agenda.
