Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care Vol 20 No 1
This is the first 2021 issue of SJRCC and we present four original research papers, five shorter articles, and a book review, with accounts from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Canada, and Australia. This issue includes perspectives on the role of informal networks in young people transitioning from care, child rights education for young people involved in child welfare services, and messages from the literature on risk assessment toolkits and intervention strategies that are helpful for those working directly with looked after children.
