Children, parental conflict & public services conference, Manchester
This important half-day conference, organised by the Early Intervention Foundation in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions, explores why and how public services must address destructive conflict between parents if they are to secure better outcomes for children.
Attendees will hear EIF set out the case for change, illustrated by senior public service leaders, to show the relevance of this agenda to local government, the NHS and schools. DWP will describe the support and resources available through the National Programme to Reduce Parental Conflict, and issue a call to action in local areas. There will also be mobilisation workshops to help participants apply planning tools and take the first steps towards local implementation.
The conference is designed for leaders and commissioners in local public services for vulnerable children and adults across local government and NHS children’s services, public health, adult mental health, the police, schools and voluntary sector. Reducing the impact of interparental conflict is everyone’s business.
