This study provides an insight into the nature of children's residential homes, the characteristics and circumstances of the young people who live in them and the short-term outcomes for these young people. It builds on the authors' recent research for the Department for Education (DfE) 'Raising the Bar? An Evaluation of the Social Pedagogy Pilot Programme in Children's Residential Homes' (Berridge et al., 2011). In the current research we have drawn a purposive sub-sample of 16 homes from the sample in the earlier study, which had not recruited social pedagogues as part of the Pilot programme. We collected new data on these homes and also re-analysed data gathered in the earlier research.
