In recent research, the link between social deprivation and families' involvement with child and family services has been made starkly evident. The Child Welfare Inequalities project (Bywaters et al, 2016) has found that children in the most deprived ten per cent of neighbourhoods in the UK are at least ten times more likely to be in care than children in the least deprived ten per cent, and 24 times more likely to be on a child protection register. This briefing seeks to build practice approaches to building resilience in the context of the social deprivation that is the experience of these families. It introduces a Resilience Framework andTool (www.boingboing.org.uk/index.php/resources/category/9-resilienceframeworks) developed by Angie Hart and collaborators at boingboing, a learning community of researchers, practitioners, students, parent carers and young people, who share a passion to tackle the problems that affect the most under-resourced children and families.
