Understanding Risk and Protective Factors for Families from Ethnically/Racially Diverse Backgrounds Receiving Child Protection Service


Project Summary:

Project Description:

Through in-depth qualitative interviews with parents from one visible minority ethnic group, this study explored the factors that led to child protection interventions and the services received from the child welfare system. As many of the participants interviewed were immigrants, the findings highlight barriers to settlement, the sense of exclusion experienced, the misunderstandings related to their needs, services that were helpful and those that were not. As the study has been completed recently, we are actively involved in further data analysis, and knowledge dissemination.
