Living Assessment

Child with a teddy


Call for participants 2022-23

We are looking for your experiences of children’s health and social care assessments

Each participant who has completed the research interview will receive a £50 voucher.

Researchers at the University of Kent are trying to understand more about what it is really like to be assessed in order to receive support from children’s services. Decisions made during assessments are really important, so we would like to interview parents, carers and adults (over 18) who experienced assessments, and individuals who have assessed families so we can learn about their experiences and offer evidence to policymakers that can influence changes that will improve people’s lives.

This is part of a major 5-year Wellcome Trust funded Collaborative Award called Living Assessments which brings the University of Kent, the University of Cambridge and the National Children’s Bureau together to build a full picture of what the assessment process is like, what works and how it can be improved.
