Building child and family resilience – Boingboing’s resilience approach in action – Angie Hart and Kim Aumann
In recent research, the link between social deprivation and families’ involvement with child and family services has been made starkly evident. The Child Welfare Inequalities project has found that children in the most deprived ten per cent of neighbourhoods in the UK are at least ten times more likely to be in care than children in the least deprived ten per cent, and 24 times more likely to be on a child protection register.
This briefing seeks to build practice approaches to building resilience in the context of the social deprivation that is the experience of these families. It introduces a Resilience Framework and Tool developed by Angie Hart and collaborators at Boingboing, a learning community of researchers, practitioners, students, parent carers and young people, who share a passion to tackle the problems that affect the most under-resourced children and families.
This briefing paper is aimed at practitioners engaged in direct work with children, young people and families, as well as supervisors and team managers of those engaged in direct work.
