Vulnerability360 is a new website and community of practice concerned with vulnerability in its broadest sense — of children, families, young people, marginalised groups or communities. The project is interested in making available unpublished research, guest blogs, opinion pieces and other materials.

The initiative was developed following publication of a book called Working with Vulnerable Children, Young People and Families (Routledge 2013) and a conference that accompanied the launch of the book.

Peter Tatchell (and here), Alan Gibbons, and Danny Dorling have all done guest blogs for the project.

If you have an interest in this field of work Vulnerability360 would like to hear from you. If you have a topic you would like to write on, materials you would like the website to showcase, or research you want to publicise and/or make available send mail to Terry Potter.

The project also plans to put various chapters of the book on the resources page with free access as soon as it has clarified the legal position with the book publisher.
