VCF 10-Year Anniversary Conference: Tuesday 5 November 2013
VCF would like to extend grateful thanks to conference attendees for generous contributions amounting to £385.71.
Over the last decade, VCF has been at the forefront of campaigning for improvements in child protection policies and practices, and through the provision of an independent advocacy service to ensure effective links and coordination between statutory agencies and the community.
Together with our conference partners, VCF is uniquely placed to highlight progress to-date within the child protection system; what has been achieved, from key reforms in place following the Victoria Climbie Public Inquiry led by Lord Laming in 2003, through to more recent changes arising from The Munro Review of Child Protection.
The programme reflects current reforms around the revised PLO and the local authority – with the legal process fully joined up with analytical social work, a model that places the family social worker at the heart of the expert group; with speakers from across the sector, the Family Justice System, and internationally from the U.S. Juvenile Justice System in Boston, Massachusetts. /… Full Overview
