A Child Care History Network Conference to be held at the Barns Conference Centre, Planned Environment Therapy

Trust, Toddington,
near Cheltenham
GL54 5DQ

Thursday 25 July 2013
10.30am – 4.45pm

‘A day conference to do some fundamental thinking about child protection’

From the Maria Colwell Report of 1974 through to the Munro Review of
Child Protection in 2011, for the last forty years child protection and
safeguarding have dominated social work with children and their
families. The conference will look at how this thinking has developed
and ask whether it is time to move on to a different way of viewing ways
of meeting children’s needs.

– How do we best protect children?
– Is safeguarding still the top priority?
– Should we place a greater emphasis on nurture?
– What else should we be doing?

As with all CCHN events, we will not only be considering historical
development, but also looking at how we can apply what we have learnt
from history. In addition to the attached programme, the day will also
provide numerous opportunities for delegates to participate and share
thinking on the theme.

Speakers include:
– SIR ROGER SINGLETON: Protection systems: where next?
– MARK SMITH: Bringing up children: A pedagogical perspective
– PROFESSOR RAY JONES: Child protection and safeguarding

£55 for CCHN members; £70 for non-members (includes lunch and refreshments)
