The latest issue of the Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care (SJRCC) has been published, with a focus on the history of child care in the UK and abroad.
Guest-edited by the University of Glasgow’s Dr Alan Macquarrie, the Journal features articles from Angus Skinner, one of Scotland’s most influential voices on policy and practice, and the late Professor Roy Parker, whose posthumous paper examines how the funding of children’s homes has a bearing on their development.
Toronto’s first street kids, and a programme developed by the Society of Friends (Quakers) for young men who have harmed sexually, form part of the new issue’s international outlook.
The peer-reviewed e-journal aims to stimulate debate and discussion about issues that relate to residential child care research, policy and practice.
Would you like to contribute to a disability themed edition of the Journal?
Your article could be about any aspect of disability and residential child care - or indeed any aspect of care, or leaving care. It could be about a point of view, a description of innovative practice, or a call to action. The theme of disability can be interpreted broadly.
We can even offer you advice from a mentor to support bringing your ideas to life.
This edition won’t be published until December 2018, but a paragraph outlining your ideas would be needed by 31 January 2018.
