Rees Centre for Research in Fostering and Education is in the University of Oxford Department of Education. Through research and its application, the Rees Centre aims to make a difference to the life chances of children and young people in foster care and those who have experienced care.
Professor Judy Sebba was interviewed by a young person about the role of the Centre in this short video.
Our research has a particular focus on children and young people in care, foster carers and the wide range of organisations that provide fostering services. It also focuses on building a sense of attachment, security and belonging for young people, and achieving improved educational outcomes, health and well-being.
The Director of the Centre is Dr Lisa Holmes. Members of the Rees Centre team and our associates are listed on our People page.
