Social Care Research Wales – Family Support Services (priority setting in association with the JLA)

In March 2022 Social Care Wales and Health and Care Research Wales launched a project to identify research priorities relating to care and support for families and children. The project will work with parents, families and young people who are in contact with family support services and the practitioners who support them to find out the most pressing concerns, then will then work with those groups to prioritise the ones that they think are most important for research to address.

The aim of the project is to develop a social care research agenda that will explore how Strengths-Based Approaches may be able to help solve some of the most pressing issues. Strength-based approaches focus on building people’s strength and resilience to help them gain confidence that things can change and improve in their lives.

The initial question gathering surveys opened in March 2022 and are now closed. More information will be available here when the interim priority setting survey opens.
