preprintposted on 02.07.2007, 12:26 by Emily R. Munro
Data on 242 children looked after by six local authorities between 1st April 1996 and 31st March 1997, and who were still in care or accommodation 12-24 months later revealed that the largest group in this long stay sample were babies admitted before their first birthday. An in-depth study was conducted to explore the life pathways and decision-making process for these very young children.
