This is a free event for up to 5 people per authority in the region.  It is aimed at front line practitioners and those who are working directly with children and families, and their managers. Hearing the voice of the child has been an improvement priority for the region for 2014/15 and the Principal Social Worker’s Network have come together to put on this exciting event to provide the opportunity to share good practice and an opportunity to reflect with other practitioners and managers on how we hear the voice of the child.

 

The aims of the event are to:

  • Increase understanding on why hearing the voice of the child is so important
  • Share good practice and learning and build practitioner networks
  • Support the improvement of practice in this critical area

 

The workshop will be hosted by the Principal Social Workers in the region and will be a mixture of workshop activity and opportunities to share and discuss the opportunities and challenges of hearing the voice of the child.  The keynote contribution is from the Victoria Climbié Foundation. 

 

There will be four workshops running in the morning and again in the afternoon so there will be an opportunity to attend two of the four workshops with plenty of opportunities for discussion and learning. The workshops will be led by Research in Practice; The Victoria Climbié Foundation; Birmingham University and CAFCASS.
