Child protection systems are multidimensional, complex, continually adapting entities that seek to prevent and respond to protection-related risks.
CFCA produces a range of publications. These include CFCA Papers, which offer an objective exploration of how research applies to policy and practice, and are written by or in collaboration with expert researchers and service providers. CFCA Resource Sheets and Practitioner Resources are shorter papers that focus on a specific issue in depth.
