Kibble aims to provide the highest standard of care to children and young people therefore it is vital we continue to invest in research.

In doing this, we always prioritise the rights and wellbeing of young people who are sometimes asked to be research subjects. To ensure young people’s protection, every piece of proposed research from Kibble staff or external researchers must be submitted to our Ethics Committee for approval.

Kibble is currently looking for research to be carried out on the following six themes:

  • Gender outcomes
  • Evaluation
  • Implementation
  • Impact of family work
  • Throughcare / aftercare
  • Transitions

If you would like to make a submission to the committee, please email email Angela Barr to request the forms, complete them and return them to the same address.

In order to be considered, submissions must be made one month prior to the scheduled meeting date.

We enjoy many close partnerships both with local organisations and international groups from South Africa to the USA and are committed to sharing knowledge and best practice with any partners on a local, national or international platform. Our place as one of the leaders in the child and youth care field is testament to our commitment to research and our rigour in ensuring all our practices are based on robust evidence into what works for young people.
