The Case for Change: A response

This submission has been compiled by a group of university researchers whose work has addressed similar themes and issues, with a common concern being the relationship between children’s social care services, socio-economic factors such as poverty and deprivation, and avoidable inequalities in child welfare interventions.  It builds upon a previous submission made by the authors in response to the Call for Evidence[1].
