Children and Families
NatCen’s Children and Families team undertakes some of the most exciting and influential applied social research in the UK.
Our aim is to make a significant contribution to public understanding of key contemporary issues for children and families including early years and parenting, education and mental health, against a backdrop of significant challenges for children and young people.
In addition to being experts in their fields, researchers in the team bring a wealth of experience in a range of research methods, including survey design, data analysis, qualitative and participatory approaches. Working with specialists in our Evaluation team, we have a particularly strong track record of delivering high quality impact evaluations including both Randomised Control Trials and quasi-experimental approaches.
