EIF would like to invite you to the second annual conference on improving outcomes for children by reducing parental conflict, in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions. These conferences are designed for leaders and commissioners from local public services for vulnerable children and adults, to come together for a day of learning and collaboration.

These important events come at a crucial time in the deployment of the national Reducing Parental Conflict programme, when every local area is exploring how to take a more relational approach to local public services, and the Government is considering how to focus on parental relationships within the 2019 Spending Review.

These free, full day conferences will bring together people and voices from across sectors for a day of learning and knowledge sharing. High-profile keynote speakers will reflect on important changes and growth within the national programme, while an expert panel session will tackle a series of challenging questions around how we continue to apply evidence to effect system-wide change. A series of practical workshops will enable attendees to apply tools and evidence to their ways of working.

Attendees will:

  • Explore the latest research evidence and practice experience on how to reduce parental conflict from EIF and local areas who are innovating in their provision.
  • Hear from the Department of Work and Pensions Minister (TBC) and their team on the mission and progress in delivering the national RPC programme.
  • Participate in local action workshops on strategic leadership, workforce development, measuring outcomes, engaging vulnerable families, health innovation on alcohol and relationships, and digital solutions.
  • Find out more about how to support ongoing growth in the UK evidence base on reducing the impact on children of parental conflict.

We invite stakeholders across local government and NHS children’s services, public health, adult mental health, housing, the police, schools and voluntary sector. We are looking to reach a wider multi-agency audience, and you can help by inviting a colleague from a partner organisation. Reducing parental conflict is everyone's business.
