This case study describes work carried out by Making Research Count (University of York) project with social services and health agencies to help them develop services for disabled parents. The structure combined the presentation of relevant research findings over one day with follow up consultation and an additional day's structured input after eight weeks to develop goal-focussed implementation strategies. Adult learning theory, systematic organisational theory and practice around management of change and the system for Analysing Verbal Interaction were used. The evaluation suggested that it achieved some success in facilitating research informed implementation strategies. A typology for measuring change is suggested.

Place of publication:

Whilst it is crucial to the welfare of children that all parents are well supported, there has been much evidence over the past decade pointing to the fact that it is very hard for parents with chronic illnesses, physical and/or sensory impairments, Deaf parents, those with learning difficulties and those with particular mental health needs to access information, resources and support to help them fulfil their parenting responsibilities. The aim was to identify useful sources of information and support and at the same time to find out whether there were particular points at which parents had experienced difficulty or were not happy with what was available. The aim was also to check out whether what the SSI said in respect of social services departments applies across other agencies and the voluntary sector.
