Using System Dynamics in Children’s Social Care

The numbers of children and young people in care are rising across the country – placing pressure on local authorities, without necessarily improving outcomes for children. We’ve been working with four local authorities to see whether their own systems might hold some of the answers to why this is happening, and how the issue can be best managed.

We’re sharing some of our early learning from this work in a new Insight Brief: Using System Dynamics in Children’s Social Care


Our system dynamics work is supported by our collaborators at the Social Systems Design Lab at the Brown School of Social Work in St Louis.
