Learning projects are guided, collaborative research and writing projects. Each project focuses on a topic relating to contextual safeguarding. Network members are invited to read the learning project prompt and write short responses based on their experiences. Members may wish to respond with personal reflections, case summaries, suggestions for improvements, or other forms. The Research Team will review members’ responses and then write a briefing based on the emerging learning. The briefings will only be accessible to Network members and they will not contain identifying information about the authors.
If you have an idea for a learning project, then please Contact Us.

The Contextual Safeguarding Network's second learning project evidences how practitioners develop and use peer-group maps and generate knowledge on a young person’s peer associations in order to assess their vulnerability or develop plans to keep them safe. The briefing is available to members of the network only via this link.
