Policy Research Network on Poverty (VLAS)

VLAS | Vlaams ArmoedesteunpuntThe study aims at identifying and analysing the conditions for social work practices to be experienced as supportive by parents, children and social workers in contexts of poverty. Based on a retrosective study of life stories in nine families, the study examines how social work functions as an actor in constructing levers that enable parents and children to make beneficial use of public services, which – in turn – may lead to pathways out of poverty.
The project is part of the Policy Research network on Poverty.
