Maltreated children face severe disadvantage in childhood and are at risk of lifelong health inequalities. The toughest decision services have to make is whether to support them at home or take them into care. This follow-up study aims to identify which maltreated children are likely to benefit most from each type of intervention (support at home/entry to care). It draws on pre-existing data from social services records and from the Born in Bradford (BiB) study of child health (n=13,500, 60% of all children born 2007-2011).
All children born in Bradford 2007-11 and assessed as maltreated or at risk of significant harm. We will use pre-existing data from:
Re-abuse, health, development, emotional and behavioural difficulties, attachment, speech and reading development.
