Developing the art of social pedagogy: the views and experiences of foster carers and the children and young people of Head, Heart, Hands: the second year

Head, Heart, Hands is a four year programme, led by The Fostering Network, to explore the impact that the introduction of social pedagogy has on foster carers, the children and young people they care for, and the wider system that supports them. This summary report forms part of an extensive independent evaluation into the impact of the Head, Heart, Hands programme led by the Centre for Child and Family Research (CCFR), Loughborough University, in partnership with the Colebrooke Centre for Evidence and Implementation. The report draws on data gathered from a sample of foster carers and the children and young people placed with them, to provide an overview of their views and experiences of the programme between July 2014 and July 2015.
