NameResearch Brief


This literature review is one of a series of projects jointly commissioned by DCSF and DH to improve the evidence base on recognition, effective intervention and inter-agency working in child abuse and explores the concept of 'neglect' as it applies to adolescents. This is a significant under-explored area in the UK.
The literature review draws together information from research in other countries on this topic, and also considers a range of other relevant UK and international literature. The review considers the practice, policy and research implications of the literature, and has also informed other products of this project - a guide for multi-disciplinary teams who work with young people and a young person's guide on neglect.

    Research areas

  • children on the edge of care, child well-being, social work issues
