My role as a research Officer with the Birmingham city council

Birmingham City Council Internship

My role as a research Officer with the Birmingham city council involved talking with families, involved in social services,  about their experiences of the Family group Conference (FGC), a fairly new service offered the Birmingham city council; I collated both quantitative and qualitative data about family member’s experiences and outcome post-service. My responsibilities included generating telephone and face-to-face interview questions, creating further information handouts to leave with families, to contact families’ social workers and conduct interviews. I additionally had the opportunity to attend a FGC (this is a family decision making and planning process, facilitated by an Independent Co-ordinator) intervention meeting and a review meeting to understand the procedure.
