written by Sarah P
Policing Parents? Protecting Children? Promoting Adoption?
Do we get the child protection system we deserve
The Transparency Project is pleased to announce a multi-discliplinary conference, on 1st June 2015, which will discuss the different views and perspectives from experts, lawyers, social workers, parents and care leavers in an attempt to re-position the current unhealthily polarised debate around the child protection system.
We will be joined by Dr Lauren Devine of UWE who is currently undertaking research into the evidence base for our current system and by Brigid Featherstone, co-author of ‘Re Imagining Child Protection’. The event is sponsored by St John’s Chambers, Bristol.
The conference will take place at the NCVO facilities, near Kings Cross in London.
The timetable for the day is set out here.
