4th February 2022 - What Works for Children’s Social Care – research project

As mentioned in our last newsletter, Catch Up® is pleased to be working with ‘What Works for Children’s Social Care’ (WWCSC) to assess the impact of Catch Up® Literacy in a home setting.

WWCSC have funded this evaluation of the Catch Up® Literacy intervention being delivered in the home by foster carers/kinship carers, to support the reading outcomes of the children in their care. The intervention is being offered to children in Years 5 and 6, in England.

The research team for this exciting Catch Up® Literacy project is made up of researchers from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and the Institute of Employment Studies.

Over 40 foster carers/kinship carers have now attended the Catch Up® Literacy online training course, and are well underway with delivering the 15-minute individual sessions!
