As part of this research a core arising theme related to experiences of the managed move process. The literature review provided is a synthesis of current and well established academic research concerning the history and process of managed moves. It also includes a discussion of relationships, effective communication, personalised support, belonging and connectedness and the importance of these for the social and emotional development of children and young people. The review of the literature and primary research also provide the theoretical foundation for a suggested managed moves model for adoption in the City of Sunderland (appendix 1).
