Event description

These networks are aimed at all practitioners, leaders and managers who may have specific responsibility for overseeing vulnerable and disadvantaged children within their setting. It is also appropriate for those who wish to develop their knowledge of supporting children who may be at a disadvantage or deemed as ‘vulnerable’. You will have the opportunity to attend three different network sessions throughout 2019. 

As a network we aim to be responsive to the needs of the group on an ongoing basis, in addition each session will include a specific focus within the session, through a ‘spotlight’. These networks follow on from the successful networks which ran last year and include a series of new ‘spotlights’. 

Spring Spotlight on children who receive support through a SAFeh, child protection and Child in Need plan.

Summer Spotlight on engaging families.

Autumn Spotlight on funding, what various funding streams are available to you.

Each session will aim to include current research and thinking and will provide you with ways in which you can proactively narrow the gap for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children in your care.
