An online event focusing on children’s and families’ experiences of the child welfare system has been organised Family Rights Group.

The event, which is entitled “Our Families, Our Voices – Working together for the benefit of our children,” is being held on Wednesday 16th March 2022, from 7.30 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.

The registration page says the following:

“Family Rights Group invites you to an evening of talks, performances and conversation curated and led by young people, parents and kinship carers with lived experience of the child welfare system in tandem with practitioners and senior children’s services leaders.

Family Rights Group’s parents’ and kinship carers’ panel members have worked together to create this event. It is an opportunity to showcase the experiences of people who have been involved with the child welfare system, through creative storytelling. The evening will challenge assumptions and highlight what needs to change within the child welfare system. Critically it will also focus upon the benefits of effective partnership working between families and the state in the interests of children.

Participants will draw upon skills learnt in workshops run by Sound Delivery in partnership with Family Rights Group. There will be the opportunity for discussion during the event including in breakout rooms.

We look forward to you joining us for this experience which we hope you will find informative, thought provoking and encourage you to get involved in promoting Family Rights Group’s aims and our work.

Confirmation will be sent out nearer the time with Zoom details. 

This event has been supported by Lankelly Chase Foundation.”
