HOME > How We Help > Research


What is it about?

  • There is generally a lack of access to relevant research data on which to base programmes and services in the aftercare sector
  • We have undertaken research as part of an initiative of the CARE Network focusing on gaining a better understanding of existing local and overseas studies relevant to the sector
  • Additionally SACA will undertake to conduct research in areas that are of particular importance to the Network

Who is it for?

  • Professionals and volunteers in the aftercare sector
