The Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection

The Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection is committed to the delivery of excellent academic research with children, young people and families. We work to build an integrated and systemic understanding of children and young people’s lives, exploring in particular how best to support their wellbeing, and to protect them from factors that might be harmful. Our interests include mental health, resilience, and child protection, as well as children and young people’s rights, relationships, play, learning and education, their communities, and the broader social environment in which they are located. We are particularly concerned with the impact of inequalities, and with questions of social justice.  . We work together with children and young people, families and communities, as well as with organisations to build knowledge that can be applied and used in practice settings, like health, social care, third sector organisations, criminal justice and family courts, and education.

You can find out more about news, research and other developments from the Centre's first year in our Annual Summary.
