Led by the Scottish Centre for Administrative Data Research (SCADR), the Administrative Data Research Centre Northern Ireland (ADR NI) and Administrative Data Research Wales (ADR Wales), this symposium will bring together researchers, policymakers and service providers working in the arena of children’s social care.

The seminar aims to illustrate and explore the value of meaningful administrative data research as a tool to better understand children's lives, including the health and wellbeing of children known to social services.

The core focus will be exploring how secondary analysis of administrative data collected about these children can help in the understanding of children’s needs and how this can inform and appraise policy and practice at a local and national level.

The programme will include:

  • An introduction to the data
  • Presentations on ongoing and potential research from across the ADR UK partnership in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
  • The opportunity to discuss how you think the data should be used, gaps in knowledge and the potential for future comparative work

Please see full programme for the event in the attachment below. Our Children's Lead Fiona Mitchell and colleagues look forward to welcoming you on 5 November 2020.

The webinar will take place on Zoom - videoconferencing details have been sent directly to those who have registered via email.
