We are working with several areas across the Country and have been asked if we will provide a forum for networking and sharing information across regions, an opportunity to share effective practice and a forum for solution focused discussion. We also carried out a survey which showed interest in this. We have listened to this and are therefore considering/in the early stages of planning an event.
It will be for professionals working to improve outcomes for vulnerable families, and especially those responsible for:
Talk from speaker/Workshop: Transforming your Early Help services and Troubled Families plan
Panel session from a respected Early Help Leader
Talk from speaker/Workshop: Embedding outstanding practice and evidencing sustained impact in families lives
Workshop with early help workforce development expert
Capacity to change framework - Talk from Bristol University about the C-Change approach to assessing parental Capacity to Change
Also, from an area using the approach in practice.
C-Change is a flexible approach to assessing parents’ capacities to change where the children are in need or at risk. It is of interest to social workers and other practitioners working with children and families in these situations.
It may be used, for example, to assist decision-making when care proceedings are being considered; in planning to reunite children who have been in care with their parent(s); and in providing support through Early Help services.
