Looked-after children grown up
Murray, E. T., Sacker, A. (2021) Data Capability Talks, Office for National Statistics, 11 May 2021
About this event:
In January 2020, the number of children in care reached a 10-year high. Knowledge on the consequences of being in care as a child, beyond early adult years, is very limited. Using invaluable ONS data, researchers at University College London (UCL) set out to change this.
The ONS data you collect or manage is used to inform a diverse range of research projects, that help to inform national and international policy, making a real difference to our lives.
Dr Emily T. Murray and Prof. Amanda Sacker (UCL) share their innovative research for colleagues across ONS, delving into the methodology, findings, and impact of their work.
You will learn how they looked at more than 350, 000 people to see if that had been in care at any point between 1971 and 2001, analysing the potential impacts of being in care.
Find out the effects between adults raised growing up in care to those that didn’t.
Hear the current and future impacts of their work.
Mental Health Awareness Week
10 May to 16 May is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. This is a time to promote the importance of good mental health for all.
This research will provide a look at the effects of mental health on those adults raised in care as children, and the insight such work can provide in helping to improve the lives of those affected.
