You are here: News New CFAB research on cross-border child protection & international family placements
1 in 4 children in need of protection who left the UK continued to be at risk of abuse or neglect as it was not possible, despite the efforts of social workers and other professionals, to safeguard them once they had travelled to another country.
This is one of the findings from a study by Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB - ISS Member in the UK) into cross-border child protection and international family placements. The research is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and reports are available on CFAB's website at http://cfab.org.uk/news/research.
