Safeguarding Post-Laming: Initial Scoping Study. LGA Research Report
Atkinson, Mary
National Foundation for Educational Research
The Local Government Association (LGA) commissioned the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) to undertake an initial scoping study into safeguarding post-Laming, with a view to undertaking further work if relevant. The purpose of the study was to identify research and literature produced since the Laming report was published in March 2009. Literature was identified through: (1) a search of relevant databases; (2) a search of local authority websites and those of relevant national organisations and government bodies; and (3) existing NFER knowledge of forthcoming publications and key contacts in the field of safeguarding. This report sets out the search strategies used, a detailed breakdown of the findings and recommendations for future research. It is important reading for local authority managers working in the area of safeguarding, policy-makers and all professionals involved in commissioning and undertaking research on this key area of children's services. Appendices include: (1) Search strategy; (2) Details of the literature; and (3) Content of the literature.
